Ames - Maraca lounger

Colombian hammocks inspire Sebastian Herkner

Sebastian Herkner has created a colourful collection of loungers for German brand Ames, inspired by ancient Colombian hammocks.

Strapped across tubular steel frames, the striped fabrics are woven and dyed naturally by female artisans in Bolivar, a region of Colombia, to reference the area's historical female weaving communities.
