Iklwa Large Chair

Designed By Mac Collins


    The Iklwa collection is crafted in ash and oak, available in either an Earth Orange stain or classic whitened oil.  Much like a throne, the visually intense high back of the Iklwa Chair is intended to frame, enhance and empower those who sit in it.

    Craftsmanship is at the heart of Benchmark and unites us as a company. We are a team of craftspeople who care deeply about what we make and how we make it.


    Collins’ composition of powerful, spear-like forms is in tune with the ideas of Afrocentrism and Afrofuturism.

    About the designer

    Mac Collins

    Nottingham-based designer Mac Collins has created a collection that fuses his African-Caribbean roots with British craft, a reflection of his upbringing in Nottingham as a child of British and British Caribbean parents. Benchmark first came across Mac Collins at the London Design Fair in September 2018, when the Nottingham-based designer was announced as the winner in the inaugural Cræftiga Awards.

    Our legacy

    Supporting young designers

    Benchmark has a longstanding history of supporting young designers, from Sebastian Cox to Russell Pinch and Thomas Heatherwick, all of whom have now established themselves as renowned designers in the UK and beyond. Since meeting Mac in 2018, we have worked in close collaboration to  develop the collection and merge his original award-winning design with our making knowledge and craft.
