Marni Chairs For Salone del Mobile 2012

Marni Collaborates With Ex-Colombian Prisoners For a New Chair Collection

This month, Marni's presentation at the Salone del Mobile 2012 will focus on a new collection of chairs crafted in Colombia by ex-prisoners. The collection includes 100 chairs featuring metal bases and multicolored PVC threads. The silhouettes reflect the popular seating style used by local Colombian families but have unmistakable Marni features like colorblocked patterns and on-trend colors.

The chairs are also a part of the "L'Arte del Ritratto" project, which features them in a photo exhibition created in collaboration with the photographer and filmmaker Francesco Jodice. The chairs are used as props for a series of portraits of Marni employees from different departments. The collection of chairs, along with the photo exhibition and accompanying video, will be presented at the Milan Marni boutique during Salone del Mobile from April 18-22. After Salone del Mobile, the chairs will find homes in various Marni boutiques worldwide, where the local employees will have a chance to pose with the famous seats to keep the exhibition going. Proceeds raised from the sale of the chairs will be donated to the institute ICAM of Milan, a project that supports children of imprisoned mothers.

For the full gallery of chairs, head over to Fashionologie.
