Enzo Mari

Italian designer (1932 - )

Enzo Mari was born in Novara in 1932. He begins to work by focusing his attention on the meaning of “form and plan”. This activity began with research on visual perception, including children’s games, graphics, design and architecture.
In 2002, the Milan Polytechnic School of Architecture awarded him the Laurea Honoris Causa in Industrial Design. He shows his works in various museums such as “La Biennale” in Venice, “La Triennale” in Milan, “Scholoss Charlottenburg” in Berlin, Santa Monica Gallery in Barcelona and the “Gallery of Modern Art” in San Marino.
Specimens of his masterpieces are exhibited in various museums including the “CSAC” in Parma, the “National Gallery of Modern Art” in Rome, the “MoMA” in New York and the “Triennale” in Milan. Due to his intense work, he has been awarded prizes including the “Gold”.
In 2001, the “Bollati Boringhieri” published the essay “Project and Passion” and in 2004 “the handleless bag”.
