Attention Marni Lovers: If you thought the collaboration with H&M for  Spring 2012 was good, wait until you see what just debuted at this year’s Salone del Mobile..

Italian fashion house Marni is no longer just designing pieces for your closet. Marni has now made the leap into the world of furniture design. Their newest collection features outdoor furniture in bold color combinations and classic geometric forms. All pieces have been constructed by Columbian ex-prisoners (Designer Castiglioni’s  way of easing their transition back into a normal working life) using salvaged materials such as concrete reinforcing bars and plastic colored pipes. While the majority of these pieces are intended for exterior use I would honestly be tempted to sneak one indoors… They are just way too beautiful to not be enjoyed on a daily basis!

In addition to their furniture collection, Marni also has a really cool “ANTICAMERA02” campaign out right now. The campaign gives recognition to the company’s employees who work daily to contribute to the success of the company regardless of how big or small their position may be. Photographer Francesco Jodice captures this mission in the photographic exhibition, “L’arte del Ritratto”. Definitely worth checking out!
