ames Launches CARIBE, a Colorful Outdoor Collection Made of Recycled Plastic

Designer Sebastian Herkner adds another outdoor furniture collection to his portfolio, but this time with German brand ames. CARIBE is a series of colorful seating and tables that were inspired by a traditional weaving technique called momposino from Colombia’s Caribbean coast. The pieces consist of powder-coated steel frames with woven recycled plastic string in bold color combinations.

The CARIBE furniture collection includes a dining chair, lounger chair, 2-seater lounge, a vis-à-vis bench, a dining table, high table, low table, and basket table, all in a multitude of colorways. The furniture is made exclusively in small Colombian factories that specialize in traditional weaving techniques.
