Design House Stockholm magazine table.
A product is not complete until it is filled with its content. Marcel Duchamp maintained that, to be meaningful, art needed a beholder. In the same fashion, products need their users. This is equally true of bowls, shelves, beds, buildings. In Axel Bjurström's Magazine Table these ideas have been collected in a product.
“What is one to do with the glossy magazines that are all over the place? I pile them up on a little table which gains its stability from the weight of the magazines. The table can be wheeled about like a trolley.”
Magazine Table has two functions in one piece of furniture: it is a magazine rack and it is a neat side table. Place it by the sofa or use it as a bedside table. There is room for a pile of magazines 45 cm high. The angle of the rack prevents the magazines from falling off. The spines of the piled magazines create a sculpture that is in a constant state of flux.
