Enzo Mari (1932, Novara) is a designer, thinker and provocateur. Determined to develop mass produced objects without compromising his belief that the outcome should always be beautiful to look at and feel while being functional, Mari developed '16 Animali' (Danese, 1957), '3087 Vase' (Danese, 1969), the chairs 'Sof Sof' and 'Box' (Driade, 1971 and Castelli, 1975) and 'Smith and Smith' kitchen tools (Zani and Zani, 1987), which are just some of his more than 2000 projects that have marked design history.

Kartell Alta Tensione Coat Rack
Perfect blend of form and function
Mary from toronto, Canada– Verified Buyer
I used the coat rack in my entranceway/living room. Very compact and unobrusive, and wonderfully practical. Great quality. Holds everything I hang on it perfectly, including handbags. Takes up very little space.
