Ami Ami from Kartell is a table and chair created by Japanese designer Tokujin Yoshioka. Meant to recall traditional Japanese interlaced patterns, Ami Ami creates an optical illusion that mimics the warp and weft of fabric. The line is available in clear or smoked transparent versions, as well as in a series of glossy saturated colors including black, white, and red. The chair is stackable and made out of polycarbonate, and the table has a 27-1/2"-square polycarbonate top with aluminum legs. The chair is 16" wide, 33" tall, and 19-1/2" deep. kartell.com
