Template, Humanscale 1a: Body Measurements Selector, 1974
Niels Diffrient worked for Henry Dreyfuss Associates from 1955 through 1980. He coauthored Humanscale, a series of tools that coordinate a user’s height with dimensions such as shoulder width, head width, and thigh length. The wall graphic represents human bodies in the 50th percentile of standing height; numbers on the diagrams indicate dimensions for both lower and upper percentiles in a range encompassing 95% of American females.
