Àdùnní Pupa

The Àdùnní chair is handcrafted from oven-dried and treated Nigerian teak wood, layered with seating foam and connected with brass nails. The upholstery comprises two culturally significant textiles: hand-dyed batik adiré fabric on the front, and hand-loomed asò-oké fabric displaying a perforated pattern on the back. These fabrics are traditionally used as dresswear. Adiré tends to be worn as everyday wear, while asò-oké is for celebratory and ceremonial wear. The significance of using these fabrics on furniture gives the material an aura of permanence.
