Magazine rack HK+04
Fashioned by cutting-edge Japanese designer Hiromichi Konno, the HK+04 magazine rack features a sculptural brass frame and one of three different leather colors: Orange, shown, Black, or White.
Combining the distinctive light- and colorradiating properties of brass with the smooth feel of leather, the more this magazine rack is used, the greater the visual appeal of the materials used to make it. The simple, minimal yet elegant brass frame is beautifully complemented by colors of the leather, and becomes the centrepiece of a space in a way that is both refined and distinctive.
KANAYA is a Japanese casting brand who has inherited excellent skills and work spirit, passed down from one generation to another for the past 400 years in Takaoka, Japan. This is a place known for the time honoured tradition of casts production, and KANAYA create beautiful metal pieces using the method.
Since being founded in 2011, KANAYA has never stopped to explore their new ideas, collaborating with young designers and architects in order to keep their products fresh and innovative, able to match modern lifestyles.
The magazine rack HK+04 was designed by Japanese designer, Hiromichi Konno. Konno has also designed for such world renowned brands as Fritz Hansen, Georg Jensen and Skagen Denmark.
Just like a beautiful antique, this magazine rack – made with smooth leather embraced in a distinctive brass frame – creates a vintage like feeling when in use and also has a quality of timelessness that will both only continue to grow.
The leather and brass materials mean that the rack’s appearance will change as they age, but with the design of this magazine rack, it will mature like good wine and is certainly destined to become a signature piece in the end.
Every small detail of the magazine rack is a reflection of the great craftsmanship that KANAYA went through in a number of tough examinations to achieve perfection. The simple, minimal yet elegant brass frame is well enhanced by the carefully chosen colours of the leather, and gives a refined, unique, enriched feeling to any sort of space, where it then stays as a beautiful piece of the interior.
The magazine rack comes in five colours; black, white, orange, green and wine red.
