ventodoor [1]

The Vento Door [2] by Akira Yoshimura [2] combines the functionality of magazine rack with the utility of a door, creating something stylish out of the mundane. The inspiration for the Vento door [2] started with the simple desire to create a door that allows a light breeze to flow through the house as if open; the need for additional privacy triggered the idea of a magazine rack.

Alternating perforated pockets allows access to the magazine rack and privacy control from either side of the door. Built out of Birch Plywood, the wooden Vento Door [2] is absolutely gorgeous, with or without the privacy of your favorite periodicals. If you are looking for an alternative to wood (???), the Vento Door also comes in an eco-friendly plastic: Polyethylene, recycled from post-consumer detergent bottles. Please contact Akira Yoshimura [2] for purchase information.
