Marni Collaborates with Farfetch To Launch Zooterico Home Collection
Marni has joined forces with Farfetch to present Zooterico: a limited-edition collection of furniture and other home objects inspired by the zodiac signs, available on Wednesday, July 8th exclusively on Farfetch.com.
The collection introduces twelve product families echoing the zodiac signs in abstract form, presenting a range of hand-woven chaise lounges, chairs, benches, rocking chairs, and stools in natural fiber and recycled PVC, as well as tableware accessories such as resin trays and cardboard fruit baskets. The range also includes decorative products such as metal sculptures and candleholders in terracotta, folding screens, umbrella stands, and basket bags in fique fiber.
Each product is one-of-a-kind and is the result of a collaborative venture with Colombian artisans. All products are crafted following traditional techniques attesting to the artisans’ conservative yet visionary perspective in experimenting with materials and colors inspired by the natural world. Through Zooterico Marni works to renew its commitment to engaging with local communities, in the attempt to actively preserve artisanal traditions.
