REHOVOT, ISRAEL | Landa has received the prestigious GOOD DESIGN award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design for its Landa Nanographic Printing Press.
According to Christian K. Narkiewicz-Laine, museum president and CEO, the museum received submissions from several thousand of the world's leading manufacturers and industrial and graphic designers.
"We designed the Landa Nanographic Printing Presses not only to address short-to-medium run lengths but also to remake the printing press user experience for a newgeneration," says Benny Landa, CEO and chairman of Landa Corp. "We worked hard to make our Nanographic Printing press appeal to the digital print marketplace of 2013 to 2030, and beyond."
"Our goal was to translate Landa's Nanographic Printing revolution into a breath-taking piece of equipment that could redefine the meaning and identity of commercial printing—all within the context of the user profile," says Elisha Tal, principal and owner at I2D, a Tel Aviv-based industrial design firm that worked with Landa on the design of the press.
The sleek design of the printing press features what is said to be an unprecedented 10-ft-wide (3-m) touch screen for operating the device. A distinctive cyan-colored frame surrounds the touch screen and visually connects the press to the Landa brand.
