The Arc Printer Makes Printing at the Office a More Social Experience

 |  |  |  |  |  |  January 25, 2012


Everyone’s lining up to get the stuff they had printed out at the lone, office printer. As the line grows longer, the people start to get crankier. And before you know it, someone’s picking a fight from someone who belongs in another department.

With this in mind, René Lee set off to work on designing a revolutionary printer with the busy office in mind. After spending a lot of time doing research and drawing up initial designs, Lee came up with the Arc Printer.

It’s basically a round printer that stacks printouts from different documents accordingly in a circle. Users can just walk up to the printer, find their stack, have a quick chat or say hello to the others who are also grabbing their documents, and go.

With this design, Lee has managed to transform the printer “from a heavy utilitarian equipment into something more elegant and emotional.”

I’d definitely love to see one of these at my office.
