In the Picture: Enzo Mari’s ‘La Mela e La Pera’


They say ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away but a pear can be so much sweeter’, now you can enjoy them both at the same time with "La Mela e La Pera" or as we say in English "The Apple and Pear". This screenprint is designed by Enzo Mari in 1963 for Danese Milano, Italy.

Enzo Mari is an icon in product, furniture & puzzle designer, a true artist, writer and teacher and was born in Italy in 1932. "La Mela e La Pera" is from Enzo Mari’s nature series.You can say that this “healty” graphic styled mod Apple and Pear is a classic piece of Modern Design…I love the simplicity and the boldness of this artwork, it makes it just that more beautiful and special. A real eye catcher that will make any room spark……………………. MORE IMAGES
