Founded in 2010, Design by Ini is the independent design studio of designer Ini Archibong. Archibong’s work is characterised by a deep interest in craftsmanship and integrity to his chosen material. His designs are enthralling, confounding and inspiring - inviting viewers to touch beyond the sublime in their encounter. His work draws from architecture, environmental and product design, as well as lifelong passions for mathematics, philosophy and world religions. As a son of Nigerian immigrants to the United States, and a resident of US, Singapore and Switzerland, his diverse personal and professional background underlines his design ethic and ethos. “Ini has become one of America’s design ‘storytellers’, where product and narrative share equal billing”, said longtime mentor and collaborator Jerry Helling, Creative Director, Bernhardt Design.
