Die Mag Rack – 2017

As much a paean to the process of making as a made thing in itself, the Die Mag Rack is based on the beauty of the press break process. A 2” diameter metal tube rests in the inner swoop of a sheet of artificial stone, which wraps upwards at the sides – as though the tube were the die around which it had been pressed – which indeed it has. The design pushes thermoforming to the material’s absolute limit.

The die also serves as a divider for separating magazines and keeping newspapers unfolded.
