MacGuffin magazine Issue 6 (The Ball Issue) is out now. Keep your eyes on the ball this autumn with MacGuffin Nº 6. Dedicated to the perfectly shaped object that is the dream of every visionary architect, but a source of great distress to the unsporty among us: the ball. MacGuffin kicks off with spinning ballboys, tumbling plants, rolling meatballs, bouncing planets, utopian bubbles, and the inventor of the smiley: Mr. Harvey Ball himself. Featuring Adania Shibli, Christine Bjerke, Véronique Patteeuw, Lindsay Seculowicz, Susan Miller, Scheltens & Abbenes, Pol Esteve, Lernert & Sander, Paul Gangloff and many, many more.
MacGuffin magazine is a new and unusual design & crafts publication from Amsterdam. It features fabulous stories about the life of ordinary, often anonymously designed things. Each biannual edition takes an object and explores the manifold stories it generates. Like the MacGuffins in Hitchcock films, these things are not the main characters, but the plot devices that set the story in motion. With each issue based around a single object, MacGuffin magazine is a platform for fans of inspiring, personal, unexpected, highly familiar or utterly disregarded things. Widely recognized as a fabously designed and immaculately researched design & crafts biannual, it is an indispensable resource for all those who want backstage information about the Life of Things.
