EVENT Marni’s 100 Chairs Charity Exhibition Opening
WHERE Joyce boutique, Central
HAPPENINGS: Italian fashion house Marni took a creative approach to promote its charitable causes. More than 100 chairs made of salvaged materials by Colombian craftsmen for the Milan-based brand were first created for the Salone del Mobile design fair two years ago, inspired by the prints and colour palettes of Marni. Proceeds from the sale of the chairs went to resettlement programmes for Colombian prisoners to get back on their feet.
A selection of 19 chairs was brought in by Joyce for exhibition and an exclusive charity sale. During the exhibition's opening night, we spotted local celebrities such as TV actor Moses Chan, singer-actress Ivana Wong and socialite Mira Yeh excitedly trying out the chic and colourful chairs.
