There are few if any typewriter cases to match the one designed by Otto Winter for Olympia SMs made in Wilhelmshaven, West Germany. It's certainly one of my favourites - stylish and very practical.
Winter applied for a patent for the design on this day (December 4) in 1953.
Winter designed many other things for Olympia typewriters, including the top for this SM1 in 1954 (along with Guido Dassler).
Dwayne Fuhlhage's SM 7. See.
Winter also designed the distinctive grille for the SM7 in 1961. He was influenced in this design by the Underwood Golden Touch machines of 1957-58 and Laird Covey's design for the Royal Futura, as well as the SM3 of 1959.
