When it comes to office hardware, we're fans of the classic designs that are as utilitarian as they are stylish. Eames chairs. Braun clocks. Anything and everything designed by Dieter Rams. Unless you're swimming in gold doubloons like Scrooge McDuck, picking up the originals can be cost prohibitive. But that's fine because there are plenty of modern creations that exude that vintage style and emulate that old school construction--without the crazy price tag. Pieces like this  Steel Tape Dispenser. One look at the pebbled enamel style finish and the steel accents is all it takes to realize yes, you actually do need a tape dispenser on your desk. Now you just have to buy some tape because it's not included.
