A project initiated by CENTRAL office for architecture and urbanism (Radim Louda, Paul Mouchet & Valentin Piret), Maxime Delvaux and UR (Chloé Valadié & Gaétan Brunet) in March 2020.
In complete lockdown, everyone was stuck at home, chained to their tables, facing isolation and eventually being inspired by the objects around them. This was seen as an opportunity to collaborate and share thoughts and fascinations around a common project, a collaborative furniture series called Objects of Fascination.
National and international architects, artists and designers were asked to translate their personal fascination into the design for an aluminum coffee table. This collection of objects is now the physical witness of that precise moment when the domestic environment was the only playground available.
The result is the production of 44 coffee tables in erratic forms by, amongst others the Brussels architecture firm 51N4E, fala atelier from Porto, l’AUC from Paris and Piovenefabi from Milano.
These 44 original tables were the core of an exhibition at MAD showing the process of design and production of these various objects.
