Vimini - Milano 18
The Vimini collection came about following a conversation we had about Nanna Ditzel and her Basket chair; apart from both being designed by women, we have much in common.
We called it Vimini because it means wicker in Italian and it sounds like Bimini, an island I like. We used just the right amount of outdoor wicker with a rougher wooden frame. It doesn't have the same modernist spirit as the Basket but it's familiar enough that, when you get close, it stirs a memory and makes you feel at home. That's what it was, more or less—an object of memory.
The chair consists of a basket with large backrest cushions. Seen from the side and back it has that modernist look. The braiding is traditional, your classic outdoor fibre.
