Description/

Sixteen animals come together to form the classic “16 animali,” an exceptional, original puzzle designed by legendary Italian designer Enzo Mari—who, one day, in the late 1950s, had a dream in which an elephant, a rhinoceros, a hippopotamus, a snake, a giraffe, a bear, and quite a few more species formed a streamlined children’s toy with endless possibilities. This iconic set was designed in 1957 for Italian production house Danese Milano; the resin version was produced in 1972. Original exterior packaging included.


Enzo Mari

designer

Enzo Mari (April 27, 1932 - October 19, 2020) was a noted Italian post-Modernist artist, writer, product and furniture designer. While being opposed to the idea that good design is a privilege for the wealthy, he combined ideas of arts & crafts practices and communism as an essential part of his design practice and philosophy. Mari studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera (1952 -1956), where he participated in the avant-garde design movements and joined the Kinetic Art group “Arte Programmata.” In this group Mari met artist and designer Bruno Munari, whose influence can be seen in one Mari's earliest designs, the carved wooden puzzle 16 Animali.
