The articles, which he produces himself, are handmade on the spot by local craftsmen, because this designer is an entrepreneur who contributes to the country’s economy and his work  is inseparably linked to his civic commitment. While his creations thus reflect a strong identity connected with the traditional skills of local handicrafts, Diallo cannot be restrictively pigeonholed as an African designer because his objects are wholly functional and serve common, universal needs.

This initial monographic study on Cheick Diallo, seen through the eyes of specialists in African contemporary art and design but above all through the objects themselves, presents an overview of the work of the last twenty years.
