This baby is currently on its way from
— an original Kartell magazine rack. Designed by Italian architect and designer Giotto Stoppino, they were originally manufactured my Kartell in the 1970s. Of course, many unmarked knock-offs were also made during this time, including some produced in Melbourne (by Plastex and other companies). Australia
These are not pictures of the exact item I have bought (as the eBay images aren’t of the best quality), but it is the same design and colour as this one I found in the
. And, yes, mine does have the official Kartell stamp underneath. Finally, no more current homewares magazines strewn on the side tables — they can now sit neatly in this instead! US
Kartell currently produce a newer translucent version of the design, but I’m still in love with the original opaque version.
In other exciting discoveries, did you know that there is an actual Kartell museum in
? I need to visit there NOW. Milan
