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 2013 and won the Core77 Design Award in the consumer products category. In 2015 it has won the Design Prize Switzerland . At the same time, a prototype has been acquired by the Art Institute of Chicago to be included into their permanent collection.
