Overall, the collection is modern with moments of tradition that make it feel like an &#8220;object of memory&#8221;.
The basket-like structures of the seating inspired the Vimini name, which is Italian for ‘wicker’, as well as rhyming with Bimini, an island that Urquiola enjoys. The pieces feature wooden frames with woven wicker basket-like seats that hold cushions for additional comfort. The collection includes sofas, dining chairs, and side tables.
