Freedom to Move

Tosin Oshinowo on where architecture meets fashion

Grimshaw Foundation interviews architect Tosin Oshinowo

Freedom to Move is a collection of headpieces by architect and designer Tosin Oshinowo and textiles and furniture designer Chrissa Amuah. In coordination with Design Miami, Freedom to Move explores the idea of protection and celebration, as well as functionality and ornamentation.

Inspired by the changes 2020 brought worldwide, the headpieces are conceived as an alternative to the utilitarian face masks that have become ubiquitous, while artistically celebrating the collective desire to move through the world freely and confidently together. Freedom to Move is a reflection that is timely and culturally significant, aimed to be understood across cultures through its exploration of materials, textures, color and craftsmanship.
