Timeless Office: Project Launch

Stapler. Paperclip. Three hole punch. Walk into any office in America, and you’re likely to find these and other classic office supplies. Despite changes in the way people do work and the physical environment of the office, the design of these products have remained relatively unchanged over time.

In a collaboration with Staples, the students in Sustainable Product Design will examine five classic office products – stapler, three hole punch, retractable pen, tape dispenser, and white-out tape dispenser – and redesign them, with sustainability, timelessness and user value in mind.

Check back in the coming weeks for updates, as students progress through the project.
