20 colours, 7 models and 21 variations for 80 chairs, 10 deckchairs and 10 tables – these are the figures of the Marni project for the 2012 Salone del Mobile (Milan Furniture Fair). Chairs and tables made in limited series and sold exclusively in the Marni Boutique at Via della Spiga 50 during the fifty-first edition of the Milan design week.
All products are handmade by Colombian craftsmen using salvaged materials: concrete reinforcing bars for the structure and coloured plastic pipes for the seats and backrests. The colours and colour combinations were chosen by the Marni team, thus adding a personal touch to the project and completing the creative process that was initiated overseas.
The chairs are part of the art project “L’arte del Ritratto”: products become subject and setting of the 17 portraits by photographer and filmmaker Francesco Jodice.
