Contemporary polycarbonate chair
AMI AMI by Tokujin Yoshioka
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 bom of the desire of
the designer, Tokujin Yoshioka, to reproduce one of
the stylistic icons typical of his 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
Ami Ami brings together the appeal of oriental
culture and the use of innovative materials like
polycarbonate and is available in two transparent
versions - crystal and smoke, and in three matte
versions - red, white and black.
