Yogi Proctor Creates an Office Machine Worth Its Weight in Gold

This extravagant photocopier by Yogi Proctor brings elegance and abundance into office supplies. The artist gold-painted a Canon 2011 copier, adding features like a neon light that moves as if to mimic the action of functionality; unfortunately, the copier isn't a functional one. Yogi Proctor explained that his influence for his latest collection, entitled Canon, came from his belief that "Making copies is a beautiful thing. Everyone makes copies in their own unique way."

I'm not sure what practical use a gold copier would have in an office environment or elsewhere, but if Canon ever marketed a luxurious office machine like this one, I would be tempted to purchase it. The reflectiveness of the gold makes it undeniably gaudy yet still sleek and desirable.
