“I don’t have an interest in design if it is only to remake that which already exists.”


With these confident words, Cheick Diallo ventures beyond the boundaries of established perceptions. He gives form to exciting new ideas and transforms traditional African design into something cosmopolitan, inventive and expressive.

Cheick’s design create a bridge between ancient wisdom and modern sensuality. His creations inspire a new global perspective of Africa and African design.
