The Red Stapler

Monday, December 04, 2006

Chances are the stapler, tape dispenser and scissors at your desk are crafted from black or tan plastic. And even more likely, they came with your cube on day one of your job. I’d like to make an argument for elevating your workspace with this classic design: the 747 Swingline stapler. After a cameo in Office Space, the red version of this classic stapler is practically a pop-cultural icon. For those who err towards a more neutral palette the 747 also comes in polished chrome, white and black. My swish Swingline is a pro at punching paper and it gives my desktop a much needed punch of good design.

I've not been happy with my Swingline lately. Maybe yours needs to give mine a little talking-to.
