gavin coyle: companion rack


‘companion rack’ magazine storage by gavin coyle

british-designer gavin coyle has developed ‘companion rack’, a magazine storage system which playfully captures
the ritual of a dog fetching the paper to afterwards rest by his/her master’s side. the piece fits one rolled newspaper
in the mouth of the figure, with generous for magazines to be placed vertically in the body of the piece.
the work, constructed from CNC wire, allows for a lightness of form, allowing the colors of the magazines
to decorate the body and not overpower the environment of the work.
