MARNI “100 CHAIRS: L’ARTE DEL RITRATTO” IS NOMINATED FOR THE DESIGNS OF THE YEAR 2013

Marni is pleased to announce that the Design Museum, London, has nominated Marni’s Charity project “100 CHAIRS: L’ARTE DEL RITRATTO” for the Designs of the Year 2013 awards.

The charity project “Marni: 100 chairs” was first presented during the Salone del Mobile 2012, followed by a new edition of 125 chairs during Art Basel and Design Miami 2012 and is now being re-edited in a different format for the upcoming Salone del Mobile in April 2013. All chairs are made in Colombia by ex-prisoners and consist of metal structure and multi-colored PVC threads featured on the backs and armrests. The style of furniture is common with Colombian families, but Marni re-interpreters the classic design by modifying the woven pattern and creating new color variations.
This Marni venture aims to support the resettlement of prisoners into social and working life.

The project falls into the category “Furniture”, where Marni is the only fashion brand nominated. Two styles will be exhibited at the Design Museum from March 20th until July 7th. Category winners will be decided by a jury on April 17th.
