Enzo Mari provoked a revolution in design with Proposta per un’autoprogettazione (1974), a book-manifesto for anti-consumerist design. In it, he offers plans for functional and aesthetic furniture to make yourself. Enzo Mari also designed everyday objects with new and cheap materials such as plastic, here used for office supplies from the maker Danese.
