Superstudio: histograms from the catalog from the Misura series
...During those years, it became clear to us that to continue drawing furniture, objects and other similar household decorations was not the solution to the problems of living in houses. Neither was it the solution to the problems of life itself, and even less did it serve to save one's soul...
The problem was thus one of becoming ever more detached from these design activities, perhaps adopting the theory of minimum effort in a generai reductive process. We prepared a catalogue of three-dimensional, non-continuous diagrams, a catalogue of architectural histograms with reference to a grid transposable into different areas or scales for the construction of a serene and immobile Nature in which finally to recognize ourselves.
