|Enzo Mari, Proposal for an Auto-design (moulds), 1973|
A new exhibition at Milan's Triennale Design Museum charts the different approaches to self-production across three historical periods: the 1930s, 1970s and year 2000.
The show investigates the origins of Italian design in the 1930s - the so-called autarkic period - then analyses the 1970s, marked by the economic crisis, to get to 2000, which is characterised by new makers, experimental forms of production and self-production.
