Manufactured from 1957–1990 by former East German car manufacturer VEB Sachsenring Automobilwerke Zwickau

Inspired by Giovanni Pintori

Giovanni Pintori is known for his minimalist style and use of geometric shapes. After leaving Olivetti, Pintori designed advertising, books, and magazines. In later life, Pintori concentrated on painting until he died in 1999 at the age of 87.

“I do not attempt to speak on behalf of the machines. Instead, I have tried to make them speak for themselves, through the graphic presentation of their elements, their operations and their use.“
