I have chosen my five objects of desire based on things that I feel make life less stressful, more sensual and more engaging, while injecting some sort of human spirit into the everyday.

Instant Vision
Gerold Miller
Miller's work blurs the lines between painting and sculpture, and art and design. By working with painted aluminium, Miller infuses technology into the piece – the result is sensual, infosthetic, technorganic and beautiful. (top image)

Gaetano Pesce shoes
Melissa
Smart doesn't have to mean serious. Gaetano Pesce's shoes for Melissa are not just sophisticated in design, they're fun. You can tear away the bubbles to make the shoes as high or low as you want, which taps into the secret pleasure of popping bubble wrap.

Opus Olive
Karim Rashid
If you listen to MP3s or your iPod you are listening to compressed music with missing information, and therefore there's a loss of quality. I have more than 3,000 CDs loaded onto my Opus, and they remain perfectly non-compressed, lossless music. It's a magnificent digital jukebox.

Delight Click-n-Charge Vibrator
Fun Factory
Fun Factory's sexy toy forms are sculptural, sensual, organic, smart and tasteful. Design is now shaping every aspect of living, so the final frontier is to shape a better sex life. I was fortunate and sexually excited enough to design their new flagship shop in Berlin.

Pop Car
Kia
I wish I'd designed the Kia Pop Car. It breaks with the archetypes of what a car should look like and sets a new spirit for the automobile that is very in touch with the 21st century. Kia has reimagined the concept and experience of driving into something that is futuristic and sexy.
