The Desirables

What: A collection of tools that help us to explore our desire and discover new ways of being physically intimate.

Why: There are already many toys designed to enhance sexual experience, but the focus is often on functionality and their purpose is immediately explicit.

How: These intimate aids are made to display as interior objects with their own visual appeal. Featuring glazed ceramics and metal accents, it would be a shame to hide them away in a drawer. The design is ambiguous enough to spark conversations about desire, or not, depending on the wishes of the viewer.

“It’s about getting our sexual side out in the open”
