Marni by Colombian Prisoners


(Images via Marni.com, Fashionologie, and Telegraph )

Marni recently launched a collection of furniture, comprising of 100 chairs and tables sold for a charitable cause ( all proceeds - donated to I.C.A.M. - a jail for inmate mothers with children in Milan ) - at the international furniture fair in Milan Salone del Mobile 2012. The furniture is completely handmade in San Gil - Colombia by former prison inmates. 
The multicolored chairs are constructed of metal frames with colorful PVC weaving threads - fact that doesn't surprise me at all since I have always associated Marni with prints and color-blocking.
Peace and Love
