" WE NEVER THOUGHT OF A CHECKED FUTURE, A WORLD OF BEAUTY AND REASON.
ONCE THE BLACK FRAME WAS REMOVED FROM TABLE TOPS, THERE ONLY REMAINED A CHESSBOARD FOR ANGELS " *

" YOU KNOW WHO I AM " HE SAID
THE SPEAKER WAS AN ANGEL ( ICARUS ! )

CLOSED HIS EYES AND MOVED HIS LIPS
"IT'S TIME WE SHOULD BE GOING "

IN 1969, ADOLFO NATOLINI AND CRISTIANO TORALDO, THE FOUNDERS OF SUPERSTUDIO WERE WORKING ON HISTOGRAMS - OBJECTS CONSTRUCTED ON A SPATIAL GRID MADE OF PERPENDICULAR LINKS THAT COULD BE ADJUSTED TO SUIT ANY SCALE, RANGING FORM DESIGN TO TOWN PLANNING. SUPERSTUDIO FIRST THOUGHT OF A SINGLE CHECKED TOP WITH LEGS THAT COULD TURN INTO TABLE, SLEEPING SPACE, CHAIR, BED, BENCH, WARDROBE OR STOOL. HENCE THE BIRTH OF A UNIQUE AND UNREPEATABLE FAMILY OF FURNISHING ITEMS, AN ICON BASED ON REGULAR GEOMETRICAL SHAPES COATED WITH CHECKED WHITE LAMINATE. ZANOTTA.IT
