Product description

A folded and ironed newspaper on the side table can only add to the pleasant ambiance of a living room. Two newspapers laid one on top of the other can betray a neglect of housekeeping. A stack of old newspapers in the living room surely heralds the apocalypse! Our newspaper tidy is one way to avert disaster. Designed as a nod to the mother of all lounge chairs, this newspaper tidy will be equally suited to all stylish homes – in five different ways; as a collection point for magazines and newspapers, a mini waste paper basket, a bundling aid, a shopping bag, and even a side table or seat.
The frame of the newspaper tidy is available in black carbon steel with a virtually scale-free surface, fibre cement, or wood (maple, walnut and dark oak).
The bag is made of heavy calf leather, and features an embossed logo and stitched leather loops for easy bundling.

Concept

The U-Board. Multi-talented.

Designers are content when an object’s striking shape complements its intended function. If this shape makes other functions possible as well, they are jubilant. The U-Board – truly multi-talented. You can sit on it to tie your shoelaces, place a cup on it while reading the paper, or use it to get a vase down from the top shelf without a step ladder. You can also turn it upside down and put things in it: vinyl records, wood logs, and even loose bulk material when combined with a matching leather bag. Likewise, you can simply enjoy it for its aesthetics. The U-Board will remain decidedly elegant no matter where it is or how it is used. Available in wood, fibre cement and black carbon steel.
