“This book is an outline guide to building rudimentary furniture that is empowering and liberating by allowing you to make simple, flexible furniture from inexpensive materials. This is not a step by step guidebook but more of a process and a philosophy that teaches a deeper understanding of material and structural engineering. My only wish is that I would have had this book as a teenager”.

About This Book

This book is a project by designer Enzo Mari outlining designs for making easy-to-assemble furniture using rough boards and nails. It is not easy to translate into English the Italian word autoprogettazione. Literally it means auto = self and progettazione = design. But more than a book of design drawings this book describes Mari’s philosophy. Though elementary techniques of furniture making Enzo teaches us to look at present production with a critical eye.

The first edition of the book was compiled by the Duchamp Centre and printed for the exhibition at the Galleria Milano in 1974.
