Matteo: Hey Nif!

Nifemi: Hello Matteo!

M: How did you get interested in objects?

N: Like most product designers, I had an extremely curious mind as a child. I would always take apart products and try to put them back together. So, at age 13 and 14, my mother thought it was a good idea for me to have a welding and carpentry apprenticeship in Lagos and this sparked my interest in manufacturing, production and handmade items. Although with all of this, I never knew the profession, designer existed, I just wanted to make things that people could use.
