MacGuffin is a new and unusual design & crafts magazine. 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.
In this issue:
MacGuffin 9 – The Rug | Make yourself as snug as a bug in a rug and open up MacGuffin Nº9, dedicated entirely to the world beneath your feet: ‘The Rug’.
MacGuffin enters a bazaar packed to the rafters with carpet jungles, carpet beaters and carpet traders; war rugs, hairy rugs and prayer rugs; magic carpets, airport carpets and travelling carpets; doormats, tatami mats and coconut mats; carpets made of brick, concrete and peanut butter; carpets from Pakistan, Palestine, Persia and Poland.
Featuring Hannah Ryggen, Krijn Giezen, Sarah Arnolds, Alice Twemlow, Kayla Mattes, Rachel Dedman, Alessandra Covini and many many more.
