Original vintage advertising poster for the Olivetti Summa 15 manual mechanical adding machine, by the legendary Italian graphic designer Giovanni Pintori. The Summa 15 was designed by Natale Capellaro (1902-1977) and Marcello Nizzoli (1887-1969) in 1949. Its sleek lines and innovative joystick operation, refracted Olivetti’s commitment to outstanding industrial design that was both beautiful to look at and ‘fit for purpose’. This attention to detail was continued in the company’s famous advertising campaigns of the 1950s and 60s, with Pintori being the foremost exponent of the Olivetti graphic style.
