Marni Chairs

Marni’s New Line of Chairs Was Made by Ex-Prisoners

Marni is entering the furniture business with a line of chairs — but instead of plush chaise lounges upholstered with its signature prints, it hired ex-prisoners to make metal chairs covered in multicolored plastic netting.

The Italian fashion house designed the 100-chair collection for this month’s Salone del Mobile in Milan (April 17 to 22) and hired a group of former Colombian prison inmates to produce them with the aim of helping them readjust to social and working life.
