Ini Archibong

Designer

Designer / Artist. His works have been exhibited globally at design events and in galleries including the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, Museo Bagatti Valsecchi in Milan, Dallas Museum of Art, and the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, amongst others and has experience working with leading brands such as Hermès and Knoll.

Exhibited at DESIGN MIAMI.BASEL 2024 In 2016, Ini Archibong began collaborating with skilled glassblowers in Switzerland to make monumental chandeliers. Dark Vernus 1 (meaning Dark Spring) is a suspended gathering of vessel-like forms with a powerful spiritual presence. The Vernus series references hopes for a new spring: “I hope that when [one] see’s it, it gives them that feeling that you get when you wake up the first day that spring has hit. When you look out the window and there’s a bunch of flowers after it’d just been a desolate winter. That feeling of not just hope, but hope fulfilled,” says Archibong. Ini’s practice is deeply informed by music and each Vernus symbolizes a different musical composition blending diverse personal experiences from “finish fetish” car culture, skateboarding, and Pasadena’s Rose Parade. Materials: blued steel, glass.
