“Olivetti Valentine” is a famous portable typewriter model, launched by the Italian firm Olivetti. It was first produced in 1969, and was designed by Perry King and Ettore Sottsass, becoming a classic in the design industry. Ettore Sottsass wanted to break with the old ideals of how to work in offices and Olivetti Valentine would create a more flexible way of working, since it was light and portable. Sottsass said: “The Valentine has been designed for all environments, except office.”
