First created in 2015. The design of the MBOMA chair is inspired by body movement and the lines of patterns in African handcrafted creations, ranging from ingese (basket), Kuba (blanket) and Dogon 'isichaba' (door). The name of this piece is called Mboma and Mboma means beats. It is a strong expression of Shaka Zulus kingdom masculinity through cultural lines, form, and colour, all translated into the future of African design. KUMSUKA call this translation Afrofuturism. The Mboma is the first piece made by KUMSUKA to represent the future of African Design in one of many ways.
