This exhibition of upcycled, story-led furniture explores the art of sitting down, inspired by Yinka Ilori’s first public commission, Happy Street.

Coinciding with Yinka Ilori’s Happy Street – redesigning the Thessaly Road underpass in Nine Elms, London – Wandsworth Council and the Royal College of Art are delighted to be hosting Types of Happiness, a solo exhibition in StudioRCA from the artist and furniture maker, inspired by the 16 different types of happiness incorporated into his bridge artwork.

Encouraging the viewer to explore a rollercoaster of emotion through the art of sitting down, Yinka invites us to investigate traditional divisions of art and design and the relationship between function and form.
