The chairs are crafted by former prison inmates in San Gil, Colombia and the colour combinations were chosen by the Marni team. Each chair is made using a traditional Colombian weaving technique using multi-colored PVC threads woven around the seatbacks and armrests to support the structure.
The Italian fashion house has displayed a number of these chairs at No.19 Greek Street. The Marni project collection consists of 20 colours, 7 models and 21 variations for 80 chairs, 10 deckchairs and 10 tables, made in limited series.
The chairs are constructed from salvaged materials, using concrete reinforcing bars for the core structure and the seatbacks and armrests made from coloured plastic pipes.
