Something Different: Marni Chairs

In time for Memorial Day, with its greasy barbecues and grassy revelry, come these outdoor chairs by Marni. The collection of 100 recliners, rockers and such—made in Colombia by ex-prisoners, easing the transition from incarceration to life on the outside—will be shown at Salone del Mobile in Milan from April 18-22. Concurrently, a photo exhibition and video presentation at the Marni boutique in Milan. Funds raised from the sale of the chairs will be donated to ICAM, a Milanese organization that reunites imprisoned mothers and their children.
