The Madison Avenue Business Improvement District has announced the final installation of Karim Rashid's newsracks all along Madison Avenue. This contemporary piece of "street furniture" will replace four boxes that previously housed The New York Times, The New York Post and various other publications including The Gotham Writer's Workship and The Learning Annex.

The piece which is being billed as "a stylish synergy of artistic shape and ergonomic funtionality" is made of fiberglass and measures 74" wide, 40" tall and 24" deep. Seventy-five boxes have been installed in total, and they can be found in the area spanning 60th to 86th Streets on Madison Avenue. J'Adore!

J'adore Karim Rashid, actually.

Or his work I mean.
