    ‘From morning to evening, and sometimes all through the night...I used to see an infinite number of signs: signs made with pencils, signs made with inks, signs made with colours, with paintbrushes and with the liquid of colours…and gradually became familiar with signs, and slowly learns to distinguish between signs, and to attribute meanings to them’.

    Ettore Sottsass, Jr. in Scritto di notte
    (Fulvio Ferrari, Sottsass: 1000 Ceramics, Turin, 2017, p. 13)
