I've been sitting on this for awhile. The bins get a lot of old desk calculators - mostly forgettable and with one paper roll arm missing. Recently there was a Facit that printed but had no display. I left it behind. This one really struck me awhile back. I had the feeling it would turn out to be by a design icon, and took a chance on it, leaving it at work until I could find a cord for it and make sure it works.
Last night I finally found a cord that fits this and now I have on my work desk a calculator designed by Mario Bellini. The Olivetti LOGOS 41PD is from the mid-70's and looks it. It's very striking as compared with the employer-provided TI-5130 now in my drawer.
I either need to find a new ribbon or renew the one it has.
