Bruno Munari - The Square
Bruno Munari, 1960
An ancient Chinese saying said, "The infinite is a square without angles." This form has always indicated "the idea of a fence, home, country" and accompanies man in everyday life, from church to square, from street signs to advertising posters, from Chinese ideograms to Pythagorean tables. Once again, Bruno Munari amazes us with a work of art between history, anthropology and natural sciences, obviously in square format.
Bruno Munari (1907-1998) was an Italian artist, designer and inventor.
"Since his very first experiences in the 30s among the artists of the Second Futurism, he always dedicated his creative activity to every form of “experimentation”, with a particular attention to the world of children and their games and toys. Never separating content from form and materials, what he designed were at once books, book-objects and games that would make us think."
