The iconic Lampedusa Pencil Stand was designed by Enzo Mari in 1967 for Danese Milano, Italy and has since become one of the classic icons of 20th Century Design, found in museum collections worldwide.
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.
