Blast from the past: Some of my references when I speak about design. Mari’s a very openly declared communist. An interesting declaration for a designer. For me, what’s important is this conflict of the designer, where we like to see ourselves as social saviour or taste makers. His work offers many angles on objects and their materiality. From mass production to D.I.Y. It’s playful and yet very intellectual. Above, Mari’s Autoprogettazione series.
