The Lagos Edition
Emeka Ogboh x Horizn Studios
For those who often find themselves on the road less travelled, sound and installation artist Emeka Ogboh (Tate Modern, Brooklyn Museum, Venice Biennale) created a limited edition series of luggage and travel essentials inspired by Lagos and its yellow danfo bus.
The danfo bus is to Lagos as the double-decker is to London, only rowdier, rougher and racier. It’s a bright yellow microcosm of Lagos city life: a roaming town square where your business is everybody’s business.
Let’s Go. Lagos.
