If the imitation was the synonym of flattery, then the number of reproductions created for the staple remover Zenith 580 make of this object the most admired design object for offices of the last sixty years!
Created in 1958 at Voghera (Italy) by Giorgio Balma, this staple remover with double jaw leaves to no doubt for its remarkable technical properties or on the declaration made by its creator on the fact that it can remove any metal staple. This staple remover is made of nickel-plated iron and can be associated with work pliers: its handles have an ergonomic shape to ensure a comfortable grip and a spring to hold the two parts with the task of increasing control.
Balma Capoduri & Company – the mother company of Zenith – was created in 1924. Its first independent line of product released under brand Zenith was a desk tray with related accessories for opening letters, which was presented the same year at the Milan Commercial Exhibition. Since then, the company got known for its quality office accessories, highly appreciated for its strength, durability in use, and design. Every component of the staple remover passes quality control before being sent to the assembly department so that every item comes out to the public with a lifetime warranty certificate by Zenith.
I have one and can confirm from practice: it is indestructible and very comfortable at using! Recommend it.
My best wishes,
