The Magazine Hanger Chair Combines Seating and Storage for Reading Material

It's wonderful, the way you set eyes on the Magazine Hanger Chair and perhaps think to yourself about what a clever object it is! Why hasn't the magazine rack been merged with a lounger before now?

Really, a holder from printed and bound media can take any form, so long as it offers a horizontal slender rod to splay the spines or creases of journals, periodicals and newspapers. The thinner the mags, the more densely packed these stiff sticks can be placed.

Here, Seung Han Lee has arranged dozens of supportive rails into the shape of a seat and a backrest. It appears that each rod has been manipulated into a U shape so that one side is soldered into the weight-bearing frame of the Magazine Hanger Chair and the other acts as a peg for publications.
