This brass and leather magazine rack was designed and produced by Carl Auböck during the 1950s in Denmark. The fourth-generation Viennese workshop of Carl Auböck combines traditional craftsmanship with modern design. The Viennese artist and designer Carl Auböck is one of the quirkiest and most delightful and collectible of modern designers. A rather odd duck in the world of decorative arts, he was a peculiar talent whose specialties included smaller accessory furnishings and tabletop pieces such as corkscrews, paperweights, letter openers, book ends and bottle stoppers.

With so many magazines going out of print these days, I feel a little less guilty about the gigantic design periodicals collection I’ve amassed over the years. Nothing beats the ease of online, but there’s still something about flipping through old favorites that never ceases to inspire. My favorites are back issues of Elle Decoration UK, which live on Vitsoe Shelving in my bedroom because I have way too many for a magazine rack. But when it comes to my rotation of recent mags, these are my top 10 picks to keep things organized.

Mason – the versatile rack for newspapers and magazines. Like a falling scarf – the curved tray made of top-quality saddle leather. The natural shape follows the characteristics of the leather: firm and supple at the same time. Magazines, the Sunday paper, your favourite book gather here in style. The framework made of flat steel comes either in highly polished chrome or matt shimmering in black chrome. This is how beautiful order can be.
