Artist-designer Enzo Mari [b. 1932] studied art and literature at the Accademia di Brera in Milan and opened his design studio in Milan in 1952. Mari’s work is driven by function and respect for materials. It ranges from furniture, ceramics, and objects, to books, games, and beyond. Vase Model 3087 (1969) is one of his most notable works – a double conical vase that functions whether standing on its top or bottom. His work is included in the permanent collections of numerous institutions, with the Museum of Modern Art alone counting nearly thirty Mari designs.
