use Drupal\contact\Entity\Message;

$message = Message::create([
    // And other fields required...
    'subject' => 'Subject',
    'message' => 'Message...',
    'recipient' => 1,

    @Hugo I've added bundle type before required fields like this Message::create([ 'contact_form' => 'feedback', 'subject' => '.......', 'name'=> ......, 'mail' => ..........., 'message' => '......', ]); May 18, 2017 at 12:10
