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 table, 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 weaving, accurate in the tiniest detail, covers the entire surface of the square polycarbonate top while the four slim, painted aluminum legs lend an air of elegance and harmony to the table.
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 table is available in both transparent and solid versions.
Suitable for indoor/outdoor use.
Price shown includes shipping.
Material(s): Transparent or batch-dyed polycarbonate, painted aluminum
