Lilikpó, pronounced lili'pop, means cloud in Éwe, a Togolese dialect and the mother tongue of Viagbo's parents. The Lilikpó workshop is a celebration of mosaic, creating contemporary designs which are based on references and knowledge gained during the artist’s travels as well as during her everyday life.
Consistently researching new sources of inspiration for classic or contemporary motifs, the workshop aims to preserve an antique artisanal craft. Mosaic is a highly skilled technique that offers endless possibilities. Entirely handmade, she creates a covering that can be found in interiors or submerged in surprising environments such as bathtubs and swimming pools.
Sika Viagbo opened Lilikpó with the hope of renewing the art of mosaic and producing future pieces of heritage. Her studies have taken her as far afield as Shigeru Ban's studio in Tokyo or the Red Gate gallery in Beijing. These multicultural experiences nurture the craftmanship at Lilikpó and help to deliver on the promise to make mosaic an indispensable aspect of contemporary interiors.
