Marni & Brian Rea

Marni is doing a collaboration with NYTimes illustrator Brian Rea on several pieces for the Winter Edition 2012 collection. Brian's drawings accompany the weekly "Modern Love" column in the Sunday paper.
"We see the line as an opportunity to experiment with art and products,” says the designer Consuelo Castiglioni about Marni’s Edition collaborations. “When I came across Brian Rea’s work, I was captured by his vision,” she says.

100 Marni chairs

via Coolhunting:

Unveiled in a flurry of buzz at the 2012 Salone del Mobile, Marni has created a collection of 100 colorful wicker chairs made by ex-convicts in Colombia re-assimilating into social and professional life. The chairs are constructed from metal frames with multi-colored PVC threads woven around the seat backs and armrests. The style of seat is traditionally Colombian, updated with Marni's reinterpretation of the woven pattern to create totally new color variations in line with the Milanese fashion house. They've also added small tables to go alongside the chairs either indoors or out.
