The Life of Things

The Rope

MacGuffin No 2 Cover

Where would we be without rope and knots? Issue Nº 3 of design & crafts magazine MacGuffin explores the fascinating life of the object that binds together pieces of furniture, K2 climbers, redneck cars, Japanese eggs and Mars rovers, inspiring a community of flax spinners, biennale curators, bondage lovers and sailing enthusiasts: Rope. Connoisseurs from designers Bertjan Pot and Brynjar Sigurðarson to writer Arnon Grunberg and artist Françoise Grossen shed their light on something so interwoven with our lives that it deserves a magazine of its own.

In stores from September 19, 2016

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.
