Grazie Enzo: Contemporary Responses to Enzo Mari

Until February 2025

Free display, no pre-booking required

Alongside the exhibition, the museum is showcasing this related free display featuring a number of commissioned pieces from contemporary designers in celebration of Enzo Mari's pioneering ideas spanning disciplines such as art, graphics, product design and education.

Sometimes a designer’s work is so influential that it inspires generations and continues to resonate beyond their lifetime. Mari’s wide-ranging practice has been a reference point for many creatives and this display features a selection of London-based designers, studios and collectives whose work shares an affinity with Mari’s. They have connected with Mari’s interest in challenging production processes, his attention to the simplification of form, his engagement with toys and games, and his desire to democratise design.

The display includes playful and thoughtful designs that challenge imagination. Visit today to explore projects created by Kirsty Carter and Emma Thomas (A Practice for Everyday Life), Martino Gamper, Sam Hecht and Kim Colin (Industrial Facility), Rio Kobayashi, Livia Lauber, Michael Marriott, Andu Masebo, Jasper Morrison, Jaclyn Pappalardo, RESOLVE Collective (Akil Scarfe-Smith and Seth Scarfe-Smith), Joseph Henry and Pooja Agrawal (Sound Advice), Clara Gaggero Westaway and Adrian Westaway (Special Projects), Nina Tolstrup and Jack Mama (Studiomama), and Bernadette Deddens and Tetsuo Mukai (Study O Portable).
