Il Gioco Delle Favole (The Fable animal Game) by Enzo Mari features card slotted scenes for children and adults to form stories on. It’s not a book to read or to leaf through but to make, unmake and build-up: a never-ending adventure in an enchanted world, played and invented anew each time with endless possibilities. The animal and vegetable pieces fit together in Mari’s inimitably elegant style to make a framework that can stimulate the imagination of old and young alike.

We have two Italian godfathers in our collection – Enzo Mari one, and Bruno Munari the other. We first came across Mari’s work through our tutor Patrick Lacey, part of design collective Åbäke. We were fascinated by how Mari set out to democratise design, a value we have since adopted into our practice. His key projects Autoprogettazione, Serie della Natura and 16 Animali sum it all up. As a student we could never see them in real life, so it’s a pleasure to be able to sell them at Hato Store.
