For our Frivolous Friday post, I bring you designer Katerina Kamprani’s “Uncomfortable Project”. It’s all about re-designing common household products into frustratingly unusable objects. One look at them, and you’ll see why….but I bet you’ll also be howling with laughter.
How about a set of stairs that lead just far enough away from a door to be awkward? Or a pot with two handles….on the same side? Or a pair of rainboots with open toes? Right. Terrible designs, but brilliantly funny. Visit her website to see all of her current project ideas, or join her Facebook page for regular updates and design discussion.
These ideas will make you start looking at regular objects in a brand new way, I guarantee. Any ideas of your own? How about a pair of glasses that aren’t joined at the bridge of the nose? Or a round bar of soap? The possibilities are endless, really.
