Design by Tokujin Yoshioka, 2008.
Made in Italy by Kartell.

Inspired by the play between the warp and the weft in cloth, the Ami Ami chair, whose name in Japanese literally means "to weave", was born of the desire to reproduce one of the stylistic icons typical of designer Tokujin Yoshioka's country - weaving. The simple squared off lines contrast with the richness of the weaving and this is achieved on the inner and outer surfaces through a complex industrial process which recreates the motif using a single mold.

Ami Ami brings together the appeal of oriental culture and the use of innovative materials like polycarbonate. Suitable for indoor/outdoor applications, the Ami Ami Chair stacks 4 units high and is sold as a Set of 2 chairs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from beautiful chair, but small The design of the chair is gorgeous. However, it is best for a smaller person and for occasional use.
