Bruno Munari

Designer: Bruno Munari

Bruno Munari was born in Milan in 1907 and began artistic work at a very early age in the cultural area of Futurism. At the same time he pursued various activities as art-director, publicist and illustrator. He progressively moved away from the influence of Futurism as well as the historic avant-garde which he took as a pretext to develop an extremely personal and singular style. After the war, he began work in product design, lay-outs and toys for children, for which he is best known by the general public.

All of Bruno Munari's work is characterized by a passionate interest in the development of childrens' creativity through play which he expresses in his work with great authority. This passion is also expressed in his writings for newspapers and weeklies, in illustrations and many children's books. In 1962 he coordinated the first large exibition of kinetic art for Olivetti; in this area Munari was quite prolific, conceiving single compositions or those lending themselves to serial production.

Attracted by the simplicity of materials in Oriental culture, he travelled widely, particulary in Japan, where the influence of Zen gave him an almost philosophical attention towards the essence of objects he designed. Towards the end of his career, he concentrated on the problem of visual and artistic education, organizing and taking an active part in courses, seminars and "animation" for children, teachers and adults in collaboration with schools and museums. Numerous exhibitions have been dedicated to his work in galleries and the world's principal museums of contemporary art.

Danese Milano

Manufacturer: Danese Milano

Danese Milano. Creating eco-friendly, innovative products.

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.
