Desktop Flair

The right tool can elevate even the most mundane task, as Office Space’s Milton Waddams knows. Italian inventor Aldo Balma designed the first Zenith stapler, in 1948, to be stylish and ultrafunctional, with an ingenious anti-jamming mechanism. The now iconic whale-shaped device gets a multicolor upgrade for the Zenith 590, which is sturdy, reliable, and versatile. It can be used for papers on a desk or posters on a wall.
