A gaggle of vibrant animals and furniture cohabitated at Marni's Spazio Umbria in Milan during Salone del Mobile 2014. Dubbed the Animal House, the industrial space was filled with wire-framed flamingos, giraffes, ostriches, rabbits, ducks and donkeys. Cutting through the swarms of small and large specimens were lines of furniture in a parallel aesthetic.
Handcrafted by Colombian women, the limited edition collection features one-of-a-kind pieces assembled in a myriad of combinations. Metal and PVC chairs in an assortment of colours and patterns feature asymetrical or symmetrical handrests, reclined or rocking legs as well as tables with flat or wrapped surfaces.
Narrated stories by women partaking in the project were filmed for Marni's online magazine, Anticamera. The fashion brand continues their commitment to charitable causes, also donating a portion of proceeds to Associazione Sogni Onlus to help terminally ill children.
