Just next door to Maison Martin Margiela on Via Spiga is Marni. For Salone del Mobile, a collection of 100 chairs were made by Colombian ex-prisoners. Common chair shapes of armchairs, sunlounges & rockers were used: painted, woven & covered in multi-coloured PVC string (the same material French bistro chairs are made with). The project is in collaboration with creative, Francesco Jodice and the sale of the chairs raises monies for ICAM, Milan. Check out the Marni
website for details.
