Enzo Maris autoprogettazione?

© Edizioni Corraini

irgendwann im letzten jahr ist KAKAROTTE im zuschnitt über ein kleines bild von Enzo Maris stuhl Sedia 1 gefallen. Und da sich KAKAROTTE schon seit einiger zeit selbst mit selbstbauprojekten und -ideen beschäftigte, war sie natürlich sofort feuer und flamme. Maris projekt autoprogettazione? aus dem jahr 1974 ist kein designprojekt, sondern ein ERZIEHUNGSPROJEKT:
jeder sollte sich möbel mit einfachsten mitteln selbst erschaffen können! und jeder sollte gleichzeitig die zugrunde liegenden sachverhalte und prozesse verstehen lernen!

By the word autoprogettazione Mari means an exercise to be carried out individually to improve one’s personal understanding of the sincerity behind the project. To make this possible you are guided through an archetypal and very simple technique. Therefore the end product, although usable, is only important because of its educational value.

Enzo Mari (born 1932 in Novara, Italy) is a noted Italian modernist artist and furniture designer.

He draws inspiration from the idealism of the arts and crafts movement, and his political views as a communist.

Mari studied art and literature at the Brera Academy in Milan, Italy from 1952 to 1956, but, self-taught as a designer, began working in industrial design during the 1950s. He opened his own design studio in Milan in 1952, from where he has continued to work for over sixty years.

In the 1960s, published a series of books, including „The Apple and the Butterfly,“ a wordless book of paintings depicting the story of a caterpillar and an apple. In the 1970s, he founded the Nuova Tendenza art movement as a professor at Società Umanitaria, also in Milan. Also in that decade, he designed the Sof Sof chair and the „Box“ chair. In 1974, Enzo Mari made the book Autoprogettazione, which deals around the DIY construction of furniture. In the 1980s, he designed the modernist Tonietta chair.

Mari has taught at University of Parma (Parma), the Accademia Carrara (Carrara), Milan Polytechnic and ISIA (Florence), the Hochschule der Künste (Berlin), and the Hochschule für angewandte Kunst in Vienna.

He has multiple works on display at the Museum of Modern Art (New York). He has had recent retrospective shows in Turin, Italy, and an important presentation of his work in Adhocracy show, during the first Istanbul Design Biennial. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enzo_Mari)
