Watch: The Ascension (Design Week Lagos)

Design Week Lagos (DWL) creates an eco-system that webs architecture, interior design, furniture design, product design, tech, visual media, and design thinking in West Africa.

The festival will unveil the seven pavilions that champion the multi-faceted offerings of creative thinking in West Africa, navigate a critical stage in the creative dialogue, define the parameters of African design, and pave the way on a global stage. 


October 2019 will see the launch of DWL with the theme of its inaugural festival titled ‘Lagos 2099: Redefining the Narrative.’ 

During the week, student competitions in the architecture and design sectors foster healthy dialogues between established design professionals and aspiring tastemakers. Their aim is to restore and rebuild, taking cues from history, superimposing them into the future. 

In addition to this, special projects between established designers will shape the way in which professionals thrive in collaborative and multifaceted design spaces. Contemporary African Design is the future.
