Design by Enzo Mari, 1967.
By Danese Milano.
The Danese Milano Otto L'Oca 1967 White Goose Poster is an excellent illustration of mid-century graphic design. Rather than creating a graphic image of the entire goose, Mari portrays a tight perspective, which begets an interesting negative space. Instead of the poster being about the goose, it's actually about the ways shapes create a picture plane.
Italian designer Enzo Mari created this bold print as part of a nature series that includes La Pera Green Pear, La Mela Red Apple and La Pantera Black Panther. The poster comes with two horizontal PVC strips for hanging the print.
Two PVC Strips for hanging are included.
Dimensions: 44" W X 22" H
Designer: Enzo Mari
Enzo Mari started his activity with studies on visual perception and then focused his attention on games for children, graphics, design and architecture: different directions sharing a common idea that is the reflection on the meaning of shape and project. He was consultant for Arredo Urbano of the Milan town hall and president of the Association for Industrial Design (1976-1979). He was awarded the Compasso d'Oro in 1967, 1979, 1987 and in 2001 for his table "Tavolo legato". In 2001 he published the book "Progetto e passione" (Project and passion) which analyses the design on a wider cultural horizon. He collaborates with design companies such as Artemide, Castelli, Danese, Driade, Gabbianelli, Interflex, Lema, Magis, Zanotta.View other products by Enzo Mari

Danese was founded in 1957 by Bruno Danese and Jacqueline Vodoz showing one-of-a-kind artistic production. A landmark meeting with Bruno Munari and Enzo Mari marked a step forward from the production of unique objects to serial production. Thus was born a new collection of home objects no longer addressed to a specific elite market. Danese became a real experimental laboratory for the concept and production of serial objects through the 1960s and 1970s.
Since 1999 Danese has found again its own leading role in the diversified universe of Italian design, addressing the challenges of contemporary perspectives as the relationships between human beings and objects change and evolve at a rapid rate. The immediate results are designs which allow a flexibility of usage and function. The widening of the Danese collection has allowed the company to become committed to ethical environmental practices. The practice of design and production at Danese has changed inside and out, aiming for continuous improvement to the intelligence as well as the poetic expression of new designs.View other products from Danese Milano
