Story

Before screens dominated our lives, most everyone began the day sitting down with the morning paper. Revive that daily ritual with the help of this rattan newspaper hanger, made in Austria by the last company still producing them. Founded in 1867, Wiener Zeitungshalter bends each holder by hand. A piece of Viennese history, this elegant design — traditionally supplied to European cafes — brings the ease of the leisurely morning or pleasant afternoon to the 21st-century reading experience. It’s an artful anachronism and a celebration of conscious slowness, a much-needed antidote to the digital age.
