I know that this is not particularly new but I never got around to writing about it and sharing how much I loved this – aside from this the Marni ‘Animal House’ project was entirely handcrafted by women from Colombia, who gained independence and emancipation through their work. The Animal House by Marni was one of my favorite design exhibitions this year. It was shown at Fuorisalone 2014 in Milan durin Milan Design week, and showed brightly colored metal and PVC ducks, donkeys, flamingos, giraffes, rabbits and ostriches scattered and beautifully distributed throughout the space. The group of Colombian women handwove intricate patterns in PVS thread onto the pieces of furniture designed by the Marni team.
