Cartagenas Lounge Chair

The colours and shape of the Cartagenas Lounge Chair are inspired by Sebastian Herkner’s visit to Colombia’s buzzing coastal city Cartagena de Indias. “Fishing pelicans, women selling fruit, cozy restaurants: Cartagena lures you in with its many facets and this collection also plays with perspectives”, describes Sebastian the collection. The elegant, curved chair can be used indoors and outdoors and comes either with a seat and back in contrasting colours or a monochrome version

Ames introduces a new material to the popular Cartagenas furniture series from Sebastian Herkner: wicker. This natural material reinvents the chairs of the series, giving them a warm and calm presence. In Colombia, there’s a long history of using wicker to craft the baskets for the arrieros, the coffee pickers, who use them to collect the beans on the plantations in the country’s hinterlands.
