“Animal House” installation by Marni at the Salone Del Mobile of Milan

Marni stole the impressions once again at this year’s Salone Del Mobile in Milan with an awe-inspiring installation, titled “Animal House”. The installation featured Marni’s collaboration with a group of Colombian artisans, mainly women, from Anayibe Rincón’s workshop, situated in the colonial town of Iza, for a limited-edition collection of giraffes, ostriches, rabbits, ducks, donkeys and flamingos, made of metal frameworks and bright colored PVC, as well as an exclusive furniture line. The collection was composed entirely of hand-made pieces, each one tailored in different colors, including chairs with one or two armrests, low tables, benches, chaise lounges and rocking chairs. The leitmotif of the collection was “asymmetry”, generating spatial figures, potentially infinite through the use of multiple shapes, as well as an amazing variety of different compositions regarding color and pattern.

“Animal house” installation, which was presented at the ex-home of historic Café Atlantique at Viale Umbria 42, is a continuation of Marni’s charitable initiatives, with part of the revenues from the sales of the limited-edition collection going to Sogni Onlus, an association helping terminally ill children. For more information, check out the latest issue of Marni’s online magazine, Anticamera (www.marni-anticamera.com), which is entirely dedicated to “Animal House” and the stories of the Colombian women that have contributed to the project.
