‘Objects of Fascination’ explores digital technology and craftsmanship through found forms. It is a sort of collection of personal worldviews by an emerging generation of architects and an attempt to give physical form to the multiplicity of our collective cultural background. During the pandemic, 45 individuals were invited to take part in an exercise. Each participant selected the image of an object of personal fascination, from which a shape was extracted, redrawn, scaled, and then cut out of an aluminium sheet to become a low table. This book presents each table through the original image that generated it, plus the selected contour, photographs of the prototype, and a text by its maker.
