Made of Italian steel, this hand-assembled stapler features a limited edition vintage finish. The gold base is contrasted against a specially textured matte black front end. Its staples, in an extra small, proprietary size, are as unique as the handcrafted stapler itself.

Oscar Lepre, founder and designer of this Italian stationary brand, draws inspiration for his products from unlikely sources. The silhouette of this stapler resembles a smiling whale, which is derived from his love for the ocean and its creatures. The limited edition vintage finish was developed after Oscar observed discarded metals that had been rained upon.

Use & Care

To refill staples, carefully unhook and remove spring. Gently push staples down the track and return spring to secure staples.

Production & Design

Oscar Lepre began his stationary brand in 1977 with the desire to fuse functionality and creativity in the design of office supplies and stationary products. Each stapler is hand-assembled by a four-person team based in Cologno Monzese, located outside of Milan, using high-quality steel sourced within Italy. Once assembled, the staplers are individually tested for quality and functionality.
