Marni + Chairs = Love

Be still my heart. 

Marni has created a 100-chair collection for this month's Salone del Mobile in Milan. The geometric metal seats are covered in colorful hand-woven plastic and cost around 300. In addition to providing the world with some upbeat, innovative design, the Italian fashion house also did some good for mankind; they hired a group of former Colombian prison inmates to produce the pieces as a way to help them readjust to social and working life.
