We are now in Stockholm, in a highly creative ambience of graphic and web designers, specifically in Oktavilla. Here the Elding Oscarson studio has made a work on the distribution of interior spaces using for partitions a very common material, magazines!
That’s right, just the magazines that after reading occupy a lot of space and we do not know where to put them, in this project are a good reconfiguring reuse as building blocks of a partition . This is what happens to Oktavilla , where space thanks to this alternative choice is easily modified depending on the needs .
The ” building system ” used is very simple : magazines of similar size are joined together to create real overlapping blocks .
The walls of magazines not only create an original pattern and colorful, but also play a sound-absorbing function , very important, especially in the workplace.
Another interesting element, the magazines do not lose their primary vocation, if necessary, may in fact still be consulted having a real wall / archive sky-earth .
