In MIlan this year alongside B&B Italia, Kartell and Vitra, the Italian fashion brand Marni showed a collection of woven works designed and made by women from Colombia in a project they have supported for the past six years.  During Milan Design Week Marni presented 'Animal House’, bringing the ex-home of the Italian city’s historical Café Atlantique to life with a festive caravan of seating objects and animals including: donkeys, ducks, flamingos, giraffes, ostriches and rabbits.

The collection of furniture and sculptural pieces are a continuation of the fashion brand’s charitable initiatives, in which they have collaborated with a group of Colombian women to realise the handmade designs which are made from metal frameworks, each one unique, tailored by brightly colored PVC. Read more on Designboom.
