My diploma project is a compact inkjet printer, which is placed on top of a paper pile. When printing, “Stack” slowly moves downwards and swallows the pile until no paper is left. The paper disappears under the printer and exits on top, where it creates a new pile.
Thanks to this new way of printing it is possible to remove the paper tray, the bulkiest element in common printers. This concept allows a very light appearance and avoids frequent reloading.




This project was selected as one of the top 10 projects out of 650 international submissions at the James Dyson Award openlink 2013 and won the Core77 Design Award openlink in the consumer products category. In 2015 it has won the Design Prize Switzerland openlink.

‘Stack’ has been acquired by The Chicago Athenaeum, Museum of Architecture and Design, for their permanent collection.
