Why do we develop an affection for some objects over others? If people were interested only in function, then any tool that works would be the same. Things we choose to surround ourselves with might have meaning because they are a gift from a friend or maybe we like the way they feel. We are inspired by the way a well-designed object can almost become a ‘collaborator’ in daily life.
