Sirio

Sirio is modern interpretation of a typeface design by the German industrial designer Herbert Lindinger for Olivetti in the 1970s. The original Sirio typeface was produced to be used on a new model of electric typewriter that had continuous profile printing elements with varying letter widths similar to that of the IBM Golfball. Wim Crouwel and Josef Müller-Brockmann also designed typefaces for the system. Unfortunately the Olivetti typewriter never reached production as it’s development coincided with the rise in popularity of computers and the project was eventually abandoned.
The font is available here.
