Heavy Metal Adhesives
The 'On a Roll' Tape Dispenser is Weighted for One-Handed Use

Plastic is the material choice for this sort of desktop implement, yet the ‘On a Roll’ tape dispenser has been oddly fabricated from cast iron. It’s got a greater sense of presence and permanence than you’d ever expect of something from your stationery drawer.

Designed by Black + Blum, the piece is a fairly minimal one, comprising a bar of metal that bends to form a tear-off tip and an arm to hold the reel. It doesn’t require the bulky base that you’re used to seeing, because the density of the iron has a great mass that keeps it securely on the tabletop. Rising above the realm of cheap and disposable office supplies, the ‘On a Roll’ tape dispenser might one day become an artifact that survives our civilization.
