A fine selection of images illustrates the creations of one of the greatest and most prolific masters of Italian design, who has given form to many objects in our everyday environment, objects that are always "intense", never banal.
[Enzo Mari. The work at the center] Enzo Mari (Novara 1932) is one of the outstanding figures of a “school” that has never really been one, that of contemporary Italian – and, more precisely, Milanese – design. As the book documents, the stubborn industriousness of Mari has produced an extraordinary accumulation of materials – to which a chronological overview cannot do justice – in the field of representation, communication and, finally, design, whose results have invaded, almost in spite of their severity and rigor, the most variegated niches of the world in which we live (furniture, lamps, accessories… all the way to the graphics of books).
A fine selection of images illustrates the creations of one of the greatest Italian designers of the 20th century, whose works rarely contain anything commonplace, but resolutely challenge the banality of the everyday world.
