Ultra Minimal Tape Dispenser Is Unjustifiably Expensive

Unless you buy in bulk, your run-of-the-mill office tape already comes with its own handy dispenser. While not as stylish as this Strip dispenser, it also doesn't cost you $32 for what is essentially a flat piece of aluminum.

I'll give credit where credit is due, though. So kudos to Raumgestalt Studio for finding a way to mark-up a strip of metal. While I doubt they're rolling in the dough, I'm sure they've convinced at least a few people to pony up that asking price.

But not me. As I sit here wrapping presents, continuously getting tape jammed up when the crappy plastic teeth on this dispenser fail to cut properly, I'm happy I've taken a stance against such frivolous overpriced designer goods. [Fitzsu via Better Living Through Design]
