October 28th, 2014 by retail design blog

Everyone is familiar with the chaos you encounter on the coffee table in your living room or at the office. Nikola Popovic, an Austrian architect and designer, decided to design a solution.
The Mag Rack Tables allow easy and quick storage of magazines. They are made of high quality materials selected for durability. The slots in the table allow one to simply slide the magazines straight into their proper storage place.

The Mag Rack Tables are made of plywood boards coated with high quality furniture desktop linoleum made in Holland and MDF (middle density fibre) boards coated with acrylic made in Italy. The layers of plywood are visible on the edges to show the harmony of two natural materials. Glossy tables are fully coated with acrylic to provide a monolithic appearance. The boards are connected by a mitter joint to enable uninterrupted flow of surfaces. The precision and strength of the joints is achieved by elegant connectors, which also make the table easy to assemble.

Linoleum is made from 97% natural raw materials, 70% of which are renewable, along with a 40% recycled content. The key raw materials used in its production include linseed oil, which comes from the flax plant seeds and, wood flour from sustainable forests and jute, the natural backing onto which the linoleum is calendared. Unique aesthetic and tactile properties of furniture linoleum ensure that every piece of furniture is unique and elegant.

Acrylic solid surfaces are extremely durable and very stable when exposed to sunlight. It will never yellow even when used in extreme outdoor environments. The acrylic surface is possible to scratch but scratches can be easily removed. If taken proper care of, this material can remain looking new for many decades.
