Enzo Mari


29 March – 8 September

Enzo Mari. Major exhibition curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist with Francesca Giacomelli, at the Design Museum, London W8

ICI London proudly supports this major exhibition celebrating the life and work of one of the greatest Italian designers of the 20th century, Enzo Mari, whose designs have inspired generations of creatives around the world.

Not only one of the 20th century’s most significant designers, Mari was also an artist, teacher, theorist, and more. During his prolific career, he created countless enduring and timeless designs, filling the homes and streets of the Milanese and beyond. An outspoken critic of the design industry, his uncompromising belief in the social responsibility of design resonates powerfully today, as we face ecological and ethical issues with ever greater urgency.

This unmissable retrospective which was produced and presented by Triennale Milano in 2020, will span Mari’s 60-year career and bring together hundreds of his projects, ranging from furniture, children’s books and games, product and graphic design, to more conceptual installation-based works. Archival material will provide greater insight into Mari’s research process, and the key principles that guided and unified his work. It is co-curated by Mari’s friend and collaborator, and artistic director of Serpentine, Hans Ulrich Obrist, with Francesca
Giacomelli, Mari’s studio project assistant, designer, curator and researcher.

Alongside this exhibition, the museum will also host a related free display featuring a number of commissioned tributes from contemporary international artists and designers in celebration of Mari’s extraordinary life and legacy, to be on shown on the first floor’s balcony.
