A CD holder definitely makes sense, but Rhonda Mooney was the closest with her filing system guess. Designer John Quan wanted to pay homage to his favorite childhood toy, the Slinky. His intention wasn’t necessarily to make a magazine rack, but the thin, flexible plywood material offers a convenient way to store magazines. I think it would be great used to store file folders on a desk, too.
Check back next Wednesday to guess a new item.
Chris, your guess came the closest in answering yesterday’s “What the…?” I could definitely use one of these Francisco Gomez Paz designed Omero racks to help me organize my overflowing pile magazines that will soon include the premiere issue of HGTV Magazine that’s hitting newsstands on October 4th. (BTW, you can click here to start your subscription to HGTV Magazine.)
Do you have a cool way for storing your favorite magazines? Or do you cut and paste them into mood boards until there is nothing left?

Our “What the…?” for this week is the Magazin created by Ding3000. This little house makes a good home for books and magazines, as CplusE correctly identified first. Congrats! (Although if one left the inside empty, I can totally see a toy fox terrier that likes to cave taking up residence in there.)
One of my pet peeves is getting interrupted while reading. I always lose my place. But with this fun yet functionally designed magazine rack, that’s no problem. Found on Design Milk, it’s a must have for avid readers like me.
