Olabanke Banjo is an entrepreneur and the CEO of Cyrus45 furniture factory. Her company got recognized at the 2nd edition of the Lagos state MSME fair in 2017. Cyrus45 is a furniture store that makes beautiful home and office furniture from recycled tyres. Yes, you read right, tyres!
#Throwback to last year when I took this #random photo at the @lagosmcic MSME fair and became an ‘internet sensation’🙈😄🙇🏾♀️ _ There had been a build up to that moment, from shutting down my business for 2 months because of lack of funds to consciously consulting God and getting re-inspired to try again. Time and chance do happen to us all, don’t they? Ecclesiastes 9:11 #tbt #cyrus45factory #tyreart #upcycle #grateful
How does one conveniently slay (physically, socially and economically) when the environment is not conducive for a healthy lifestyle? _ This is why I work hard to create artsy and functional furniture pieces using discarded tyres. This is my contribution to the reduction of environmental pollution while simultaneously giving an avenue for Nigerians to proudly SLAY with Made in Nigeria products. _ Being a SLAY queen is looking beyond self and working towards a greater good for everyone. @sheleadsafrica @samsungmobileng #SLAYqueenNG #cyrus45factory
R A N C H I Dining Set made by yours truly for @alwaysonpointng. 🍴🙂 _ We went for two tones for the T A I chairs on this one, working meticulously with our client’s brand colours to add a pop to this piece. _ Now talk about redefining breakfast, lunch and dinner time! Tea anyone? ☕️ 😉 _ #cyrus45factory #tyreart #recycling #sustainablelifestyle #ecofriendly #environmentalart
