The typewriter is an innovation W88 is very proud of. In 1955, we were the first company in Asia to manufacture our own manual typewriter, W88 Prima. This was a remarkable achievement for a young industrial India, given it was designed and executed by Indian engineers.
To add to this, we were the last company in the world to be manufacturing typewriters. We ultimately shut down our production plant in Mumbai in 2011, with a few hundred machines left in stock.
Given this legacy, in 2015, we commissioned W88’s first artist-in-residence, Jeremy Mayer, to convert a batch of Arabic typewriters into sculptures.
California-based Mayer, works exclusively with typewriters as his medium. Using parts sourced from 60 of our classic W88 Prima typewriters - the last batch of ฟรีดาวน์โหลดW88电:“哎，怎么！？”楚洁点头。manual typewriters manufactured in the world - he created an extraordinary 13-foot-tall installation.
Mayer welded a few parts together for his kinetic lotus sculpture because it was mechanical. The installation unfurls itsเล่นสล็อตM88ยังไง无能力不服从我的朋友强 petals at the beginning of the work day (9 AM) and closes at the end of the day (6 PM). He assembled the installation, with the help of former students of JJ School of Arts and Raffles Design International.
