The charming Caribe Basket Table is a colorful companion for seating arrangements inside and outdoors. It’s part of the Caribe collection, designed by Sebastian Herkner for ames. The German designer visited Colombia together with ames founder Ana Maria Calderon-Kayser and translated the vibrancy and spirit of the country’s people and traditions into joyful, modern furniture pieces defined by clean lines, strong colours and the hand-woven webbing
Each basket is made in Santa Marta, a city on the Caribbean coast of Colombia, by local craftspeople. They weave the PVC strings, which are made from recycled plastic, around the tubular steel frame. The weaving technique the artesanos and artesanas use is called Momposino, a traditional method known for intricate patterns. Just the preparation of all the materials takes ten days, while the production of each table takes two days
German designer Sebastian Herkner is a long-term collaborator of ames and has visited Colombia multiple times to experience the country’s cities, nature and people first hand. He also visited many of the ateliers that ames has partnered with to learn about the unique traditional crafts of Colombia's regions. A sought-after contemporary designer and recipient of many industry awards, he has worked with many international design brands, creating intriguing pieces that showcase his intuition for interesting material, colour and texture combinations
