Slovenia issued 11 stamps Nov. 10, including one commemorating a washing machine.

Showing the Gorenje Simple & Logical washing machine of 1996, this 78¢ stamp is part of a series saluting Slovene industrial design. 

A press release about the stamp from Gorenje, a Slovene manufacturer of large appliances, said: “The revolutionary product — the first touch-controlled home appliance — was a global innovation. For Gorenje, it meant the start of a user-centric design approach that emphasizes simplicity of use and which Gorenje continues to pursue under the slogan “Life Simplified.”
