Inside Marni's Columbian inspired furniture collection
The always bauhaus inspired Italian house, Marni has just released it's latest venture of furniture, in celebration of Milan Design Week. Taking great reference from the Columbian culture the whole showcase has been made in Coloumbia itself by a group of women who have gained their independence and freedom through work. The ethically friendly collection entitled 'Marni Ballhaus' explores the notion of dance and performing arts which has been used to "create a link between the new design collection and the traditions of Colombia, the country that inspired it.An invite to discover Cumbia, an ancient Colombian dance for couples that arose from a blend of diverse rhythms and cultures. Marni has put its own individual slant on it, customising the traditional full circular skirts worn by Cumbia dancers and the knotted scarves the men wear around their neck"
The vibrant collection which is currently being shown in an industrial space at Salone Del Mobile, features loungers, chairs, bags and lamps all including Marni's infamous hand-woven PVC cord that's made them one of the most forward thinking brands of today.
