45° Stapler / Stapler Design

45° Stapler

Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

The design of 45° stapler is very clever, with a stapler head that can be used right at the edges of a stack of paper and that also ensures that the angle is not too large and therefore results in the paper moving about. The only difference between a traditional stapler and the 45° stapler is the 45° angle.

Clever, but how do you get to the middle?
Jury Statement
The first reaction when we got the news was absolute surprise! It is so AMAZING and AWESOME! The iF STUDENT DESIGN AWARD is certainly our BIGGEST motivation so far, which makes us even more determined to spare no efforts in further advancing our design, from the bottom of our hearts and with our purest and truest love.
