Zyp-Zyp – the minimalist tape dispenser?

ZYP-ZYP in use

Tape is handy. Mostly around the holidays but there are other uses. Hanging posters and notices for example. Most tape comes with a tape dispenser already included but if you look at that and think, “I’m not putting that disgusting piece of plastic junk on my work area” then Zyp-Zyp is that the tape dispenser you’ve been waiting for. A minimalist tape dispenser.

Honestly, it took me reading the description to figure out what this thing was. I thought it was a very sharp piece of jewelry. Like a statement on beauty and danger? But clearly, I overthought that because it’s not a ring or a bracelet. It’s a tape dispenser.

Zyp-Zyp alone

It holds the tape in a locked position, you snap it forward, while holding it, and pull off as much tape as you need. It’s made by hand out of copper and works with standard office tape. On the one hand, this does cut down on waste from the disposable type of tape but on the other, this is a little weird. Still, if you’re into stylish stationary, you can grab this up for €24.
