Often described as one of his most notable works, Enzo Mari designed the Pago Pago vase (vase model 3087) for Danese in 1969. (It was later reissued by Alessi, but this is an original Danese production.) Made of injection molded ABS plastic with a gloss finish, the vase is formed from two different sized cones, the smaller contained within the larger, allowing the vase to be inverted with either top or bottom creating a vase.
Mari named many of his designs for Danese after far flung islands, e.g. "Pago Pago" is the capital of American Samoa. This vase and other Mari designs can be found in the permanent collections of many museums, with the Museum of Modern Art alone counting nearly thirty Mari designs. Enzo Mari's illustrious career resulted in the creation of over 1500 objects.
in very good vintage condition with wear consistent with age and use. Marked on the inside bottom of the vase "ENZO MARI 1969 DANESE MILANO MADE IN ITALY"
