Furniture brand Benchmark is producing a collection designed by Nottingham-based designer Mac Collins as a celebration of his connection to the African diaspora.
The throne-style chair has been spun into a collection,  called Iklwa, which consists of two chairs and a side table, developed together with British furniture maker Benchmark in ash and oak wood.
The Iklwa collection was informed by ideas of Afrocentrism and Afrofuturism, references that come through in the throne-like shape of the chairs and the spear-like forms of both the chairs armrests and the legs of the small side table.
