Milan - Salone del Mobile: Marni Mercado de Paloquemao. Marni presented the Mercado de Paloquemao, the new limited charity project. Inspired by the market of Bogota, Colombia, Marni offered a setting in which the protagonists are the bright colors of exotic fruits from a distant land, their forms and their interpretation. The installation was awarded the prize Best Impact of the Milan Design Award for "the great visual impact, tied hand in glove to an ongoing project of social support. The opulence of nature is in harmony with the desire to involve the city through an opportunity for exchange and openness.”
