Hardwearing and functional, the humble pegboard is having a bit of a moment–in my eyes at least. It’s regulated form and endless versatility create results that are surprisingly pleasing on the eye. The final image of New York’s Maritime Building and its five foot wide portholes may be a tedious link, but it’s pretty neat nonetheless.
