Details

Drawing on his African-Caribbean heritage, Mac Collins designed the Iklwa Lounge Chair (2018) to empower and enhance its subject. The design was informed by ideas of Afrocentrism and Afrofuturism, references that can be seen in its spear-shaped arms and a curved, shield-like back. Crafted of FSC-certified oak or walnut, the chair is finished with a natural, low VOC, hard wax oil, which is a hard wearing finish that keeps the timber looking and feeling as natural as possible. To create Iklwa, Collins worked with the British bespoke furniture company Benchmark, known for its impeccable craftsmanship. Made in the U.K.
