After five years online, friends of FFF magCulture are opening a bricks and mortar real life shop in London.
The Shop will stock over 500 different titles from around the world in a 400sqm space devoted to magazines. Regular magCulture Journal readers will know exactly the type of magazines to expect – a strong mix of contemporary indies alongside the best from the big publishers.
Situated at the base of one of London’s first sixties tower blocks, the original sloping ceiling and terrazo floor have been restored and bespoke furniture designed and built by South London Makers.
The main feature will be a bespoke 6m x 2m shelf furnished with the 606 Universal Shelving Shelving System designed by Dieter Rams in 1960 and made by Vitsoe.
‘Other cities have great magazine shops with generous stocks and knowledgeable staff,’ says magCulture’s Jeremy Leslie, ‘I felt it was time London had that too. We have some good shops already, but they tend to also be bookshops or gift shops.’ The magCulture Shop will stock only magazines, aside from a few natural extensions such as books about editorial design.
