Marni at Salone del Mobile 2012

Posted on April 3, 2012

Marni presents, during Salone del Mobile 2012, a collection of 100 chairs which have been made in Colombia by ex-prisoners, aiming to reinforce their resettlement into social and working life.  All chairs consist of metal structure and multi-colored PVC threads.

The chairs are linked to the “L’Arte del Ritratto” project through a photo exhibition, created in collaboration with the photographer and filmmaker Francesco Iodice, who will use the chairs as background for a series of portraits of Marni teams from different departments. “L’Arte del Ritratto” is an homage dedicated to them, destined to last in time, which is also accompanied by a video that reports the shooting experience.

The collection of 100 chairs, the photo exhibition and the video will be presented at the Marni boutique and all photos will be published on ANTICAMERA2, Marni’s online magazine on marni.com during the Salone del Mobile 2012. The amount raised from the sale of the chairs will be entirely donated.

Created in Paris, sold around the world, worn touching the heart, this limited edition charity AIDS T-shirt will be exclusively available in all Maison Martin Margiela…
