Sedici Animali Puzzle by Enzo Mari

The works of Enzo Mari really speak to us. We've admired his Fruit Prints, especially La Pera. One of his best designs is the Sedici Animali wooden puzzle created for Danese in 1957. The puzzle consists of 16 different animals that fit together. The animals can also stand upright and played with as figurines. Danese issues 300 of these editions every year, each one numbered. So, yes, it's a luxury item. You can get yours at Inhabitat and elsewhere for about $600.
