Tokujin Yoshioka Born in Saga, Japan in 1967, Tokujin Yoshioka worked under Shiro Kuramata in 1987 and with Issey Miyake since 1988. In 2000, he established his own studio, Tokujin Yoshioka Design. He has also collaborated with various companies both within and outside Japan, such as BMW, Toyota, Hermes, KDDI, and Swarovski. Some of his most important works are displayed as part of permanent collections in the world's well-known museums, such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Centre National d' Art et de Culture Georges Pompidou, Victoria and Albert Musem, and the Vitra Design Museum.
The Ami Ami is Yoshioka's first chair designed for Kartell. The design was inspired by woven fabric in Japan ('ami ami' is Japanese for weaving).
