Yinka Ilori: Types of Happiness at StudioRCA

A solo exhibition from artist and furniture maker, Yinka Ilori who has been commissioned to redesign a Nine Elms rail bridge.

This summer, artist/designer Yinka Ilori’s first public realm artwork, Happy Street – commissioned by Wandsworth Council in partnership with the London Festival of Architecture – will transform the railway bridge on Thessaly Road in Nine Elms.

In anticipation of the bridge makeover, Types of Happiness is inspired by the 16 different types of happiness incorporated into his Happy Street artwork. A rollercoaster of emotions is expressed through the colours and patterns carefully painted on each of his bespoke chairs. Each unique piece of furniture is intended to evoke a different type of emotion or feeling. Visitors are encouraged to look beneath each chair to discover the type of happiness which inspired its creation.

The exhibition also features a scale model of the bridge design and a large-scale drawing of Happy Street, coloured in by Ilori and members of the local Nine Elms community.

London-based artist Yinka Ilori specialises in telling stories through furniture, inspired by the traditional Nigerian parables and African fabrics that surrounded him as a child. Humorous, provocative and fun, each piece of furniture he creates tells a story. Bringing Nigerian verbal tradition into playful conversation with contemporary design, Yinka Ilori’s work touches on various global themes that resonate with different audiences all over the world.

Running from 8 May until 23 June, the exhibition is open Saturdays, Sundays and May half term. 

Sunday 12 May, special extended opening from 10am as part of London Craft Week.
