La Serie della Natura comes from research to transform an image into a symbol through a planned reduction which tends to eliminate the superfluous in favor of meaning, in the optical of the realization of art multiples.
From 1961 to 1976 Mari designs products with 17 symbols of silkscreens texiline. Mari starts to work on the subjects that make up this series since 1957: in the same year he sees the first version of the Gioco Delle Favole, that Danese would put into production in 1965. It becomes, one of Danese production’s symbols, this series is one of those few examples that reach the object of creating, for home environment, an artistic idea built on a concept of seriality. It does not exhist an original object, for this kind of work, this is because we obtain the final image after long technical processing on series.
Mari looks for shape and technics of representation, a sort of “super icona”.
La Mela is not an apple but The Apple.

Description

Enzo Mari was born in 1932 in Novara. Since the time of his studies at the “Accademia delle Belle Arti” in Milan, he had an intensive artistic activity, with personal and collective exhibitions in various museums of contemporary arts.

Since its foundation in the fifties Danese Milano has been a company that gives value to space. It does so with a catalogue of disruptive objects. The spirit of the time and the centrality of the human being are reflected in the importance that the company assigns to the choice of authors it involves. The quality of the materials it applies and the synthesis of forms achieved so far transcend seasonality. The creation of archetypes for the home and the office as well as the desire to design contemporary objects whose innovation is not diluted in the course of history is the furrow that Carlotta de Bevilacqua, unique administrator of Danese Milano since 1999, continues to trace, choosing to give back perspective without nostalgia to an historic company of the Italian design.

The story of Danese Milano is a narration of material culture, suggested functions, discreet pedagogies and practical beauty. The legacy of the founders, with the work done by Bruno Munari, Enzo Mari, Angelo Mangiarotti and Achille Castiglioni, is found in the catalogue where it continues with the projects of Matali Crasset, Elliot Erwitt, Marco Ferreri, James Irvine, Naoto Fukasawa, Martì Guixè, Jonathan Olivares, Paolo Rizzatto, Francisco Gomez Paz, Jean Nouvel and BIG.
