We have a bucket list with hundreds of objects. So selecting the subjects is absolutely one of the challenging things about making a thematic magazine. Especially because, in a way, we think we could make an interesting magazine about any object. But we try to choose objects that are a little bit ambiguous because of their form, function, material or meaning. The objects that you tend to ignore because they’re so mundane, but are extremely interesting when you look at them closer. The first theme we chose didn’t require much discussion: the bed. In the first place it’s a rich source of personal stories, and an object that leads to the most varied ruminations about ‘the life of things’. And the theme is perfect for a first issue: for most people, the bed is the beginning and end of everything. After the bed, we decided it would be better to avoid another furniture piece, which would have felt too similar, but instead went for a building element that is as much an object as an abstraction: the window. After that we wanted to discuss an object that is also a material – the rope – and our latest issue is dedicated to the sink, a container that sounds rather unsexy but is in fact a centrepiece in our homes and lives. So we try to look for different perspectives in the series as well.
