« The role of the designer is more than make a book that look good.
The book as a total piece is important for me : content, size, weight, smell.
Small pieces of architecture, I love to build books. »
(Irma Boom dans une interview donnée à Peter Biľak en 2012)
"…if design is merely an inducement to consume, then we must reject design; if architecture is merely the codifying of bourgeois model of ownership and society, then we must reject architecture; if architecture and town planning is merely the formalization of present unjust social divisions, then we must reject town planning and its cities…until all design activities are aimed towards meeting primary needs. Until then, design must disappear. We can live without architecture…" - Adolfo Natalini (of Superstudio)
