Designer Creates Uncomfortable Everyday Objects Just To Annoy You

Whenever you see an object that is crudely designed, it makes you scream a little bit inside. Especially if you are a born perfectionist. Take a look at these design fails and try not to feel uncomfortable.  The Athens-based architect Katerina Kamprani is the creator of “The uncomfortable”, which is a collection of deliberately inconvenient everyday objects. All this looks neat until you see what we are actually talking about. Your mind will freeze at the single thought of trying to use these!

Athens-based architect, Katerina Kamprani, is the creator of “The uncomfortable”, which is a collection of deliberately inconvenient everyday objects. All this sounds neat until you see what we are actually talking about. Your mind will freeze at the single thought of trying to use these!

While most product designers are often trying to make objects as useful as possible, Kamprani does the exact opposite, annoying people with her creations. She even mentions that she created them in that way only to annoy people. On her web page, she explains that her goal is to “deconstruct the invisible design language of simple everyday objects and tweak their fundamental properties in order to surprise you and make you laugh”. Not only that, but these epic designs will probably make you appreciate the interaction with your daily objects more and look at it in a totally different way.
