Autoprogettazione 2.0 / A maker approach to Enzo Mari open furniture project


(S├ębastien Lucas / Future Architect) #1

Autoprogettazione is a reinterpretation of 1977 Enzo Mari project. Enzo Mari is an italian designer who made him famous in 1974 by designing furniture that everyone could build with simple tools. Inspired by an arte povera style and by marxist ideas.

It is an early example of an approach that is now common among makers and architects interested in giving some of their projects in open source.
