Magazine Wall Hanger
The product that upcycles magazines to art

The MAGAZINE WALL HANGER offers the ease of revisiting beautiful images from magazines and books, articles, poems, art zines, comics, recipes, music notes, quotes, or whatever gem deserves the attention. When users find a nice magazine spread, they clip this to the wall hanger, then hang it like they would a painting. MAGAZINE WALL HANGER began in Switzerland as part of a Master of Design Studies project. Two years and many prototypes later, the product as it is today was created.

It draws inspiration from the movements of DIY, ready-mades, and adhocism to prolong the use cycle of a product that would otherwise be trash. “In magazines, there are often beautiful images and thoughtful texts that have had a lot of energy put into its creation. Yet, when a magazine has been read, it often ends up in a pile somewhere or in a recycle bin – all its beautiful pictures and texts forgotten. Why should this content only be seen once and then placed on a shelf or thrown away?

I believe that in the future, we would reuse products in several ways before they are too worn and must be recycled.” – Liam Saletti, inventor and designer. MAGAZINE WALL HANGER is a product that enables its users to buy a beautiful magazine and hang it on their wall as an art piece – easy to move and change depending on their mood, taste, or environment. It is a reaction to our consumerist way of living.

It gives users the power to make old items into something more valuable and desired – a process called upcycling. The product offers two versions – the first, known as Original, has its design for spreads up to 400 mm. The second, the wide version, is for spreads up to 550 mm. MAGAZINE WALL HANGER has an environmentally-friendly design, made with natural materials, minimal packaging, and recyclable parts.
