MacGuffin wins Stack Magazine of the Year Award!
Where would we be without rope and knots? #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.
The Stack Magazine of the Year Award goes to MacGuffin, the Amsterdam zine founded by design historian Kirsten Algera and architecture historian Ernst van der Hoeven. The magazine showcases fascinating stories behind everyday items: issue one was all about beds, while issue three focuses on rope and knots.
