Amalia, wicker chair Eggpicnic

Located in Chile, the city of Chimbarongo has managed economic growth since the beginning of the century thanks to its mimbre tradition. However, this craft is steadily disappearing as young people turn to work in the fields searching for better working conditions and higher wages. In hopes of saving the tradition, Studio Eggpicnic is giving mimbre a contemporary sculptural update with their Amalia seat. Spotted on experimenta_magazine, the organic seat is moulded to offer a comfortable seating experience and features two rounded gaps on each side. Artisanal tradition was intertwined with modern design to create a constructive method of transposing this modern revitalization in a surprising seat design.
