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. Steel base, lacquered MDF top and rubber wheels. Width 55 cm, height 54 cm, depth 32 cm (H 22", W 21.5", D 12.5"). Wipe with damp cloth. Maximum load: 45 kg (99 lbs). Axel Bjurström became interested in design when he worked as a project manager for fashion company Filippa K. He took his master's degree in interior architecture and furniture design at Konstfack, the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm in 2007 and now runs his own studio, working with product design and architecture.
