In Attesa Waste Basket

$69.00
Designed by:  Enzo Mari
Manufactured by:  Danese Milano

Designed by Enzo Mari in 1971, this is the designer's acclaimed In Attesa wastebasket.  Its canted cylindrical form is both atypical and engaging.  In Attesa literally means “awaiting or expecting” in Italian – in this context, perhaps “awaiting” a crumpled piece of paper.  We will say that its canted opening certainly enables greater success when tossing something into this wastebasket.  Composed of injection-molded polypropylene, In Attesa is available in several colors.  In Attesa is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.  Manufactured by Danese Milano.

Designed in 1971.

10.2” Diameter, 16.1” H

Danese Milano

Established in 1957, Italy’s Danese Milano has been synonymous with award-winning designs from Bruno Munari and Enzo Mari that now figure prominently in the permanent collections of museums worldwide. Mari’s Ameland sensual letter opener (1964) or his enigmatic, canted In Atessa wastebasket (1971) challenge preconceived notions of how everyday objects can look. The designer’s large format graphic screen prints of fruit and animals from the 1960s and 1970s instantly become bright, Pop focal points on any wall and are a favorite in kids’ rooms. Over the ensuing decades, Danese Milano has collaborated with Angelo Mangiarotti, Achille Castiglioni, Kuno Prey, and Marco Ferreri. Just recently, Ron Gilad was appointed as the manufacturer’s creative director and Switch Modern is excited about presenting new pieces as they become available.
