7 Magazine Wall

Tidskriftsvägg

I came across this very cool wall idea via Sunset Magazine blog, Home by Sunset. From far away it looks like wallpaper, but up close they are bundles of magazines to create this most amazing tile effect. Foto: Åke E:son Lindman. Arkitekter: Elding Oscarson. (via Design Delight).

This is so inspiring. I've seen magazine wallpaper designed by Tracy Kendall. But I love the idea of ACTUALLY using the magazines as an interesting and semi permanent barrier. This is a really good way to create a wall in a space you can't actually alter.

If only I'd kept every magazine I ever bought - brilliant idea.

Seriously, I'm moving and just recycled about 100 magazines. That wouldn't gotten me very far, though. Where do you even get them all bundled like that?

you could probably do it with books too, right? or academic journals?

i'm thinking they probably had access to some unsold mags from a distributer or something like that, so they were already pre-bundled...?

Wow, that's incredible! I work for a media company and I'm seriously considering robbing the place. No, not really, but it's still fabulous!
