the design process for the quirky ‘moby stapler’ by israeli designer hagai zakai was based on the following question:

 

‘staplers have mouths.. what kind of animals are they? big.. fish?..no, whales! and whales have big bellies and ribs like the ribs used in plastic. I should use the space inside.. how about storing staples? then you wouldn’t have to look for them every time it runs out!’

 

available from monkey business, the whale shaped stapler, complete with a head for storage is a fun and practical addition to either the home or office.

  • This is almost exactly the “whale stapler” kickstarter project…even down to the really low-fi prototypes.

  • Well, this is simple, great to look at and incredibly useful.
    Especially when you are in a rush to find your extra staples – and it makes me smile.

    Thanks!
