The Olivetti Showroom in Venice was commissioned in the late ’50s and designed by Carlo Scarpa. Just recently it was restored to its former glory and houses a collection of typewriters & calculators. Great building + office type things = school trip. Want to come? we’ll book a coach. (pics via coolhunter/okolo).
Raw Colour are a Dutch collective who experiment with simple colour and shape in a variety of fun and interesting ways. Their series ‘Flow’ ,paint charts on electric drills, is especially nice. The ‘This is Basic’ series features chunky blocks of coloured paper. What’s not to like?
