A wicked little Japanese printing machine. This lo-fi piece of technology has a cult following with films dedicated to it and an internet campaign to keep it alive, although unfortunately manufacturing stopped in 2008. プリン トゴッコ Print Gocco is a self-contained battery operated screen printer that allows you press off mini-prints. Wiki says the print gocco name derives from the Japanese Gokko loosely translated as make-believe play. The film is from Koleo to a Bridgitte Bardot soundtrack, singing 'contact!'. And artwork on the left by print gocco fans Peskimo, and photo right from Lullatone.

The bookshelves were a photo from an event listed on the dazed digital newsletter about a series of talks on the influence of italian design taking place at the design museum in London. I saw it and just thought - wouldn't that look nice with a matching jumper! Which I quickly found on SupermarketSarah. I really shouldn't be so easily distracted, back to work.
