Enzo Mari

Due La Pera – 50x70

£130

The iconic two-colour pear print 'La Pera', here in its smaller format, was designed by Enzo Mari in 1963 for Danese Milano as part of his 'Serie della Natura'. His choice of archetypal subject matter, in combination with the form and technique used to represent them, transform the commonplace into a timeless symbols.

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.

Emete, Brand Director

Enzo Mari was an Italian industrial designer and artist known for his simple but poetic interpretations of functional objects, including children's puzzles, calendars, and traffic bollards. His clever designs are characterised by their clean, minimal lines, a tactile handling of humble materials and a desire to create beautiful objects for everyone.
