Colombian Artisans Inspired Sebastian Herkner’s Outdoor Collection For Ames
Seeking inspiration for his collaboration with Ames, Sebastian Herkner of Studio Sebastian Herkner embarked on a journey with company CEO and creative director, Ana María Calderón Kayser, across her native Colombia. The result: Ames Sala, a furnishings line that channels the country’s artisanal craftsmanship but with contemporary flair. Maraca, for example, is a lounge chair slung with a wool or cotton seat evocative of a siesta-ready hammock but framed in powder-coated tubular steel. There’s also the Circo dining chair, its rounded powder-coated steel frame strung with leather straps, and the Nobsa rug, in handwoven wool.
