This typewriter appears as designed in 1979 by Mario Bellini and the Hispano-Olivetti team. The next model to this one, Olivetti Lettera 12 -which is only slightly different... I seem to recall the space bar is divided into two, being the shorter one placed at the right and red in colour- won the Delta de Oro in 1979 (and thats why I am listing this under Spanish design. The Olivetti Spanish brand, Hispano-Olivetti was of equal importance to the original Italian Olivetti).
You all can see the amazing lines in this machine... it really is a beauty!
