The space brings about the colourful universe of Marni Market, as it displaying its famous geometric pattern, with hand-woven squared basket bags in PVC, tote bags with checkered motifs, hammock bags, and crocheted bags in cotton and wool – all as usual in a multitude of colours and sizes, and with the Marni logo in leather on the front.
Entirely designed in Italy and handcrafted in Colombia by a community of artisans that have collaborated with the brand for many years, the products range portrays Marni’s spirit through an original synthesis of design, colour and form. Marni Market has also introduced a series of astronaut-shaped sculptures and colourful bandanas featuring pixelated drawings.
Here original furnishing accessories cohabit with design objects in a space that invites visitors to forget about the rules. Its limited-edition products are effortlessly adapted to different settings that draw inspiration from the brand’s colourful flair.
The interiors feature house sculpture: a series of flower side-tables, stools, rocking chairs, baskets and magazine racks, animal-sculptures and masks in metal frames and colourful PVC. Most products are artisanal, and so may show minor imperfections.
