Marni Animal House.

ANTICAMERA_05_15 This blog post is the holy grail of posts – amazing photography of art and furniture, made by a fashion line with charity and good will sprinkled in to boot. Marni Animal House is a project that Marni put together for the Salone Del Mobile 2014 installation. It’s a Β caravansary of giraffes, ostriches, rabbits, ducks, donkeys and flamingos peppered with those amazing chairs, of course. God, how I love those chairs. The collection celebrates asymmetry and the delight in the different combinations. Notice that some of the chairs have 2 arm rests, some one, some none. They can be combined in different ways. Jeez, I really really wish I had a summer home to put those chairs in. Like, for real.

All the pieces are hand made by a group of Columbian women out of metal and PVC. The women gain independence and emancipation through this work. Marni has an online Magazine, called ANTICAMERA, and the new issue is dedicated to Animal House, narrating the story of the women who contributed to the project. The photos against those amazing walls are from ANTICAMERA and shot by a Columbian photographer named Mauricio Rivera. I absolutely ADORE those photos. I love everything about them. How they aren’t straight, how they are shot in the sun and super saturated. How people are walking in and out of some of them. SO good.

Part of the proceeds will beΒ donated to Associazione Sogni Onlus, an association helping terminally ill children.

    Those animal sculptures are pretty great. I would love a donkey or rabbit! Could be the new sheep statue trend? And for a great cause!

    Any tips on HOW to buy one of these chairs? I also sent an email inquiry to Marni (not sure if I’ll get a response). Not only do I want to support this group of Colombian women, but the chairs are beyond awesome, in style and in color. Any leads? Feel free to email me. Thank you for sharing.
