The humble paperclip has been around for over a hundred years, and can be found in just about every office in the world, and now the Little Man Paperclips are putting a designer spin on this stationary classic.

Now, London-based designer Lee Washington, as part of a project to use design to cheer people up during the difficult economic climate, has created a new version. He decided to choose a common object and create a design that will make people smile, and intends that people will buy them for their colleagues and friends as gifts to spread happiness.

The Little Man Paperclips are set to be increased in the coming year and sold via the Little Man Shop.
