Ivey by Hugo Passos for Jasper Morrison

Crates of old vinyl records inspired this magazine holder by London designer Hugo Passos.

Called Ivey, the oak plywood holder has three internal dividers to keep the magazines upright and easy to browse, like 12" vinyls in a record shop.

    This is Morgan Geist.

    Interesting/sad how design can be so self-referential. We have always thought of design as the expansive and limitless activity that empowers itself in reaction to the changes in the world.

    However, even as Mr Morrison celebrates the wonderment of the “super normal”, here we see a designed magazine rack full of, well you guessed it, design publications.

    These photographs perfectly express the state of design today. Style conscious, myopic and inbred.

    Thank you,

    Morgan Geist.

      Funny you should say such a thing Morgan Geist, because you seem to have posted your comment on a design blog full of, well you guessed it, style conscious, myopic and inbred design work. To me, this is a simple,functional and normal object . That's it.

    Dull and lacking in imagination.

    who reads magazines?

  • andrew

    Nice, simple and useful. Typical Jasper to choose something like this.

  • Well, it certainly isn't the greatest design in the history of mankind. But I would keep one of those next to my armchair nevertheless.

  • Vanessa

    I love it. Its a simple and purely functional redesign of an every day object! Isn't that what design is all about?

  • Maria Rietveld

    I agree Vanessa. Beautiful, effortless work here. Will definitely get one for my living room, well done Mr. Passos!
    BTW, does anyone know how old he is?
