Dress up this spring with MacGuffin Nº 7, dedicated to an object that is not just a garment, but more so a mirror of power and desire: The Trousers. MacGuffin puts the pants on one leg at a time with survival gear, working uniforms, tent slacks, yoga leggings, hammer pants, men’s skirts and the big question: ‘what is in the pocket’?

Keep your eyes on the ball 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.

Issue N° 5 opens up the curious life of the cabinet, where intimate stories are hidden away, kept and inevitably shown. Revealing enlightened DIY shelves, immaculate celebrity closets, whimsical cocktail bars, socialist kiosks, classic cubes and cabinets that beat you at a game of chess.

Issue Nº 4 delves into the alluring lives of the sink, the object that speaks volumes about who we are and how we live. Featuring mesmerizing inox sinks, sinks for genever drinkers, pathologists and butchers, ‘kommunalka’ sinks, sitcom sinks, and bottomless sinkholes into which everything disappears.

Issue Nº 3 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.

Issue Nº 2 is all about the fascinating life of windows: opulent Maison Jansen curtains, windowsills with rampaging plants, salvaged sash windows, stormproof shopping displays, refugee camp outlooks, confessions of a window cleaner, the fear of fenestration and Seth Siegelaub’s stunning collection of historic textiles.

Issue Nº 1 features amazing backstage stories that revolve around our beds: cookie-cut Airbnb bedrooms, customized Do-it-Yourself beds, neat nightingale nests, copulating skyscrapers, instable flowerbeds and deflated airbeds are investigated by writers, critics, designers, craftsmen and photographers.
