Enzo Mari
Italian, b. 1932

Enzo Mari is an important figure in Italian design, although he has been known to frequently declare that “design is dead.” He studied Classics and Literature at the Accademia di Brera, Milan, and blends art and design in his work, which is underpinned by intense research and his philosophical, theoretical approach.
