25 Of The Most Desirable Objects Ever Made

25 of the Most Desirable Objects Ever Made

First of all I have to make this clear: I am not an objectophile. Really, no. Not really. OK, maybe a bit. Bit who isn't? We're surrounded by scores of gadgets so well-designed it's almost impossible not to fall in love with some of them. The following set of images serves as a confession for me. Call me a pervert, but I adore these objects so much, that simply to touch, to hold them causes a pleasant and tickling sensation in my nervous system.

And I would like to invite you, dear reader, to share your passion for objects in our discussion zone below this post. If you wanna play, this is the time to confess: post the photo of your beloved thing, describe the brand, the model, the year, and why you are in love with it. Anything goes.

Here is my tableau of inanimate objects that I desire:
