Long associated with artful color combinations and sought after silhouettes, Italian design house Marni recently went mainstream with their collection at H&M stores worldwide. Now they are taking another leap, this time into the world of furniture design. Presenting this month for the first time at Salone del Mobile in Milan, Marni showed a collection of 100 pieces designed for outdoor use.
The brightly woven chairs were made in Colombia by ex-prisoners, in an program designed to ease their transition back into society. Proceeds from the sale of the chairs will be donated to ICAM, an organization that reunites imprisoned mothers and their children.
