Listening to Joy is a colourful, interactive playscape designed by Yinka Ilori for families of all ages to enjoy. This vibrant installation uses pattern, music and colour to shape and inspire joy and delight for kids young and old!

The playscape of brightly coloured zippable mesh walls forms a maze that can be opened and closed, creating new ways to change the space. You can also experiment with sound making, using two circular xylophones. The music created will be recorded, mixed and transformed into a series of musical pieces, recording the fun, joy and laughter the maze provokes. The playful design of the maze promises joy and adventure.

Yinka Ilori is a London-based multidisciplinary artist of a British-Nigerian heritage, who specialises in storytelling by fusing his British and Nigerian heritage to tell new stories in contemporary design. He began his practice in 2011 up-cycling vintage furniture, inspired by the traditional Nigerian parables and West African fabrics that surrounded him as a child.
