MacGuffin No. 6 - The Ball

by MacGuffin

€18.50

Keep your eyes on the ball this autumn 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. Featuring Adania Shibli, Christine Bjerke, Véronique Patteeuw, Lindsay Seculowicz, Susan Miller, Scheltens & Abbenes, Pol Esteve, Lernert & Sander, Paul Gangloff and many, many more.

The biannual design and crafts magazine featuring remarkable stories about ordinary things returns with its fourth instalment – this time dedicated to the sink. An object that speaks volumes about who we are and how we live, the sink’s many alluring manifestations are featured here in a variety of ways. Some surprising sink typologies make an appearance, from inox sinks to kommunalka sinks, plus specialised sinks for pathologists, babies, and more. Inside, a short story by prize-winning author Kira Wuck, a series of photos of stainless steel sinks by Scheltens & Abbenes, writings about kitchenettes, and an intriguing photo essay about Suriname Jungle Sinks by Viviane Sassen.
