TfL printer

Working with Florian Dussopt Design Studio, we helped create this printer installation to celebrate 150 years of the Johnson typeface that TfL use in their signage.

The machine consists of 26 letters and 4 punctuation mark stamps that are arranged in a circular pattern. An arm swings a paper sheet around to the letter, whilst a roller moves the sheet up or down. When it is in the correct position, an air piston pushes the paper into the stamp.

We worked on the mechanical and electronic design and fabrication as well as developing the firmware for the project.
