Stephen Burks and his New York studio Readymade Projects have been retained by Moroso to coordinate and design the upcoming Moroso showroom exhibition during this year’s Milan Design Week. The exhibition, entitled “M’Afrique C’est Chic” by Stephen after his recent trip to Senegal, features African artists Soly Cisse and Fathi Hassan, photographer Mandemory, and architect David Adjaye’s “African Cities” research project alongside new designs by Ayse Birsel & Bibi Sek, Phillipe Bestenheider, Tord Boontje, Stephen Burks and Patricia Urquiola.

Stephen Burks has been working with third world countries for a long time. Here is a movie by Designboost where Stephen talks about his work in South Africa through Aid to Artisans.
