1954 Olivetti Lexikon 80

Serial #2246607

Another masterwork of the Nizzoli-Beccio design team, Lexikon 80 epitomizes the Olivetti stylistic option of "creating a protective shell that echoes the configuration of the machine's internal components." It's a marvel how a full-sized standard could have a structural form so sleek and graceful. The typing action is one of the best I've ever encountered, perfectly snappy with an assured stable feel. Made in Ivrea, Italy.

In a parallel universe, I was once the Senior Vice-President of Design (Typewriter Division) at Ing. C. Olivetti & C.,S.p.A., Ivrea, Italy. In the real universe, I'm a Chicago-based casual collector and hunter of Olivetti typewriters, and related ephemera, publications, and film sightings.
