Raw materials and urban design come together in the RawUrban Kitchen collection


Minimalist designer, interior designer and lifestyle entrepreneur, Olubunmi Adeyemi is the founder of AFROMINIMA and THE DÅ BRAND, with The RawUrban Kitchen Collection being their first design collection. The RawUrban kitchenware and tableware collection was guided by Adeyemi’s love for food and culture.

“My mother was a great cook and she had this spinning stick called OMOROGUN, which is a traditional cooking tool used to prepare local dishes in Nigeria,” he explained. Adeyemi was inspired to refine and redesign this local tool, which ended up being the start of the RawUrban Kitchen Collection.

The name of the line comes from the use of raw materials and its use in an urban environment. Each piece is handcrafted from locally sourced wood, with the collection consisting of cleanly designed utensils and tableware crafted according to the AFROMINIMA design ethos that follows functionalism and minimalism.

The RawUrban collection was designed for chefs, design enthusiasts or avid cooks, and consists of spoons, trays, bowls, spatulas and more. Each item is multifunctional in nature and handcrafted with the use of locally sourced wood and hand painted with non-toxic paint for a contemporary urban look.
