Printers are perhaps not the product on which designers have been unleashed with innovative ideas in recent years. Technology, consumption, functions have changed, but the form and mode of use have been the same for decades. Mugi Yamamoto, a young Japanese-born designer who moved to Switzerland at the age of 5, has instead created something really new. It's called Stack (http://www.mugiyamamoto.com/stack/) and an ink-jet printer that eliminates the need to load sheets of paper, because it rests directly on a pile of sheets and as the press consumes the paper column.This eliminates the need for a paper drawer and gives a touch of magic to a product considered boring.Stack not only a nice project, but a working product that moving by eating the mountain of sheets creates more interaction with users and overturns the traditional printer design. For Yamamoto the project with which he graduated from the Ecole Cantonale dArt in Lausanne, for us the example of how we can radically innovate even a device, like the printer, considered mature and without too many pretensions.
