Magazine Racks

Float Magazine Rack

What the… ?? Shown out of context, this particular piece boggles the mind just a bit, but in the right setting with a few magazines strewn about, eventually anyone will be able to make the connection. It’s a magazine rack, made of “precisely angled” powder-coated steel, that keeps magazines floating midair, easily within reach from your reading spot.

It’s that time of the year when stacks of logs in your living room are permissible… unless you don’t have a fireplace, that is, because then you’ll just look like a hoarder. This Mixrack is a simple frame of powder-coated steel that can accommodate firewood, wine bottles, or magazines. As long as you keep the stack tidy and avoid any other compulsive gathering of multiple materials, it’s an excellent way to minimally store whatever you choose.

Ivey Magazine Holder

If you’ve not changed over to digital subscriptions, you know that piles of magazines can be a little messy at times. There’s also always the fear that someone will come along and change the stack to a stepped fan spread (a la doctor’s office), and that would just be the worst. thing. ever. So, head off that particular horror by considering this Ivey Magazine Holder by Hugo Passos. It has three internal dividers to allow for easy browsing, and will keep your periodicals pristine and orderly.

Helit Foster Newspaper/Magazine Rack

While this newspaper/magazine rack costs quite a few pretty pennies, it does seem satisfyingly hefty and no-nonsense. And, should you need other items similar in style, there’s quite a few other Helit Foster desk accessories, just be prepared for similar prices. See the rest over at Fitzsu.

Designed by Norman Foster.
Dimension: 16. 5 in. W x 9.25 in. H x 6 in. D

Strapp shelf

This is the sort of object I wish I had the patience to make. It’s a simple bookshelf made from a steel strip, leather strap, and a brass ring. Its form was inspired by the designer’s favorite old belt and has a handcrafted quality that would work well in many a modern interior. I also like how it would lend a certain amount of importance to one’s current reading material.

Stack Magainze Rack

It should be mentioned that this magazine rack by Robert Bronwasser could easily double as a wine rack, and can be used horizontally or vertically. Or, if you so choose, stack of a few together to make a larger storage spot.

15.5″ W, 11.4″ D, 15.5″ H

Also available from FLINDERS for €73,59.

This is the sort of thing you’d see in a public setting perhaps, but I think it could work in a home environment just as well*. Whichever you prefer, this set is available in both broadsheet-format and magazine/tabloid size and has room for eight or four newspaper sticks.

-Available in oak and birch
-Treated with cold-pressed linseed-oil

*Guess it depends on your taste, but I like seeing some public purposed items appropriated.

Mod Magazine Rack

As a container to hold magazines or other miscellany, this is certainly different from others in its class. It’s so nice to see the urn/vase shape and a matte black surface instead of minor variations on stainless steel boxes. Also worth mentioning: the footprint of this magazine rack is sized small for tight spaces.
