Macguffin 2: The Window

Publisher Macguffin

ISBN 24058203

Idea Code 15686

Each biannual edition of this magazine for design and crafts focuses on a specific object, exploring the manifold stories it generates. In this issue, the window is the starting point for a collection of intriguing stories on panoramas, plastic frames, and plant-filled windowsills. For many, the window is nothing more than a hole in the wall, and is seldom experienced as an object. Defenestration, separation, draperies by Maison Jansen, and the V&A Museum’s window cleaners are among the subjects examined by an array of contributors, including writer Douglas Coupland, design critic Alice Rawsthorn, curator Corinna Gardner, and designers Chris Kabel and Rudy Guedj.
