Selly Rabe Kane steps up to the No Waste Challenge

The No Waste Challenge is spearheaded by What Design Can Do.

Senegalese fashion designer Selly Rabe Kane took part in Design Indaba Expo's 2014 Africa is Now exhibition, spoke at DI15, created a sculptural wonderland for Nightscape 2017, and joined us on stage again at DI19 as one of the designers from across the African continent who worked on the IKEA ÖVERALLT furniture collection. 

Now she’s endorsing the No Waste Challenge spearheaded by What Design Can Do. Historically, designers have encouraged over-production, over-extraction, and a never-ending quest for novelty.

Now they’re stepping up to change the game. Kane is one of 7 prominent designers and creative thinkers who are speaking out about the issue of waste.
