Ames – the German company founded by Ana María Calderón Kayser to create furnishings and complements with the typical craftsmanship of Colombia – presented three new items at the Salone del Mobile 2018 designed by Sebastian Herkner.
The bicycles made by hand in the Bici project, like the Caribe collection, are decorated with Momposino woven baskets in the same colors as the furniture line; the La Che collection of hand-woven tables (with a traditional technique from the Andes) and the new planters of the Circo collection in the XL version.
Ames’s products are made in keeping with principles of functional quality and conservation of resources.
La Casa Colombia – the Ames stand at the Salone del Mobile 2018 – was inspired by La Casa de las Aguas in the city of Honda in Colombia, and imitated its forms, colors, materials and atmosphere.
The lively Colombian lifestyle was illustrated through images and video of great expressive impact by Andres Valbuena.
