Typewriter that is -                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      The legendary Italian designer Ettore Sottsass first introduced the Olivetti Valentine typewriter in 1969. He wanted to make a portable typewriter for “people on the move”. Fast forward 43 years and the design aesthetic of vintage Italian still survives the passing of time. Now featured in the Museum of Modern Art, the iconic design of this Valentine in form and function got people to think outside of the box.

And the color! Can I get my hands on one for Valentine’s Day?
