Prototype: Inspired by the weave of a fabric, but made from polycarbonate in a single mould, Ami Ami ("weaving" in Japanese), is the new chair designed by Tokujin Yoshioka, a new addition to the Kartell team. Ami Ami was born out of the desire to r
eproduce woven effects, the typical stylistic hallmark of Japanese culture. The simple square lines contrast with the rich decorative motif, visible on both the inner and outer surfaces and created using a complex process. Ami Ami combines references to O
riental culture with the use of innovative materials like polycarbonate and is available in a range of delicate colours - amber, mother of pearl, smoke grey, opaline and transparent - and the saturated shades of white, red and black. The chair is accompan
ied by a table with aluminium legs and a 70x70 cm square polycarbonate top entirely covered with the same woven motif.
