Design: Patricia Urquiola
We called it Vimini because it means wicker in Italian and it sounds like Bimini, an island I like. We used just the right amount of outdoor wicker with a rougher wooden frame. It doesn’t have the same modernist spirit as the Basket but it’s familiar enough that, when you get close, it stirs a memory and makes you feel at home. That’s what it was, more or less—an object of memory.
