Macguffin Magazine, Issue 8, The Desk
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:
Time for some hot desking with MacGuffin Nº 8, an issue devoted entirely to our daily cockpit: the desk. MacGuffin pulls open desk drawers and points up desk plants, surveying a succession of clean desks and messy desks, radical desks and resolute desks, makeshift desks and talk show desks, not to mention the fine art of office pranking and presidential doodling.
Featuring François Dallegret, Emily King, Kazuhide Takahama, Saint Jerome, Formafantasma, Rosa Rankin-Gee, Jan Švankmajer and many, many more.
