Camouflage Your Fridge With Leave Magnets

Camouflage Your Fridge With Leave Magnets

Even if your fridge is already energy-efficient and eco-friendly, here’s one more way to make it truly ‘green.’ Originally designed by Richard Hutten to be used on the office ceilings of the Boijmans van Beuningen Museum in Rotterdam, these plastic leaves have a small magnet at the base allowing you to attach them to any metal surface. Besides using them to spruce up a filing cabinet or other metal faced appliances, they’d also come in handy for hiding that rusted out Chevy sitting in the backyard you keep meaning to ‘fix-up’ one of these days.

The Leave Magnets have supposedly been put into production by an office furniture maker called Gispen, but I can’t find any information about them on the company’s website.

    I believe you mean “Leaf”, as the plurality is indicated by the s on the end of magnet.

    Actually ‘Leave’ is the name given to them by Richard Hutten. You’ll have to take your grammar concerns up with him.

    The “leave” seems to be used as an intransitive verb here. Not “magnetic leaf”, but “magnet for making something leave (out)”, to “send out leaves”.

    Art designers… Messing with our minds is their job. Well done. 🙂
