Books and magazines are becoming more decorative than informative or practical, and the Magazine Globe embraces this slow transition by putting periodical publications on display in a tastefully playful way. As its name suggests, the Magazine Globe takes on a spherical shape. What the name doesn't divulge is its colorful array and slotted spots that give the magazines it stores a sculptural aesthetic.

Conceived by Denmark-based designer Niels Kjeldsen, the Magazine Globe is specifically designed for reception areas. Nevertheless, modern homes can certainly benefit from this artistic magazine holder as well.

The Magazine Globe boasts a smart, eco-friendly packaging. It is shipped in a compact cylindrical tube, made possible since this magazine rack can be flattened conveniently for easy storage.
