Luxury fashion label Marni will unveil an exotic and vibrant furniture installation as part of Milan Design Week, built around the Salone del Mobile fair, this April.
‘Animal House’ comprises a series of limited edition pieces which draw inspiration from giraffes, flamingoes and rabbits. The festive designs feature strong color schemes and bold materials such as metal and PVC.
The range includes classic chairs, chairs with one-sided armrests, rocking chairs, small benches and tables. Asymmetry is one of the principal themes of the collection.
Each unique piece was handmade by a group of female Colombian workers as part of a sustainable work initiative, with a portion of the proceeds being donated to charities which help terminally ill children.
The freedom to mix and match within the collection is characteristic of the Marni brand, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year.
Salone del Mobile will run April 8 – 13.
