Designer Tim van de Weerd did not intend for his product to be hidden between the sofa and the wall; his threaded magazine rack makes a striking statement that draws its own attention. Responsible for the simple task of holding a stack of reading materials, this object has an unexpected composition that changes as its contents do.

The MagazineRek has a flexible steel frame, finished in a crisp white coating. Perforations in the metal accommodate the stitching of elastic cords that thread beneath a couple of low braces. The resultant stretchy surface creates slots for narrower journals and books, plus it sinks down beneath the weight of more items as a pile gets higher. The more you give it, the more stable the threaded magazine rack becomes.
