After studying literature and art at the Accademia di Brera in Milan, Enzo Mari began submitting designs to industry and in 1957 created his first object for Danese. Not content with being just an artist and industrial designer, Enzo Mari was always preoccupied with the role of object design in everyday living and the function of the designer.
As a design theorist, Enzo Mari had an enormous influence on the design world, continuing to teach at many universities and institutes in Italy and abroad throughout his career. Of the vast number of objects (over 1500) Enzo Mari designed for firms such as Danese, Driade, Alessi, Le Creuset, Olivetti, Zanotta, and many others, one of the best-known Enzo Mari designs includes the Marina chair for Zanotta based on a simple farm chair.
