Riassunto: Humanscale is an important tool for everyone who designs for the human body. It incorporates the extensive amount of human engineering data compiled and organized by Henry Dreyfuss Associates over the last thirty years, including the most up-to-date research of anthropologists, psychologists, scientists, human engineers, and medical experts.
Humanscale consists of pictorial selectors equipped with rotary dials. This portfolio contains three selectors (two sides each) which present over 20,000 bits of information, basically encompassing anthropometry, guidelines for seating design, and requirements for the handicapped and elderly. Men, women, and children?large and small?are represented. Measurements are given in metric as well as English units.
Engineers, architects, industrial designers, planners, interior and furniture designers, and craftsmen will find that the selectors minimize their searching through numerous and conflicting sources and unreliable information. Humanscale is not a panacea, of course. More detailed studies dealing with interior space, safety, human strength and movement, consoles, displays, vision, reach, controls, and pedals should also be consulted. The selectors should be used in a creative way, and the models and mock-ups based on the data should be tried out with the intended users.
