Il Gioco Delle Favole: The Fable Game

Sold Out

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. 


Dimension: 32 cm x 16 cm
Languages: Italian, English, Spanish and Japanese texts
Edition: 6th reprint 06/2019

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.
