While design is supposed to create solution to problems, but these household products are designed to create problems.
Years ago, An Athens-based architect Katerina Kamprani has begun to re-imagine everyday objects started from dish-ware, cutlery, mugs, watering can, boots and other household items. But instead of making them more functional, she made them extremely difficult to use.
The series is called The Uncomfortable, is a collection of deliberately inconvenient everyday products.
Kamprani’s idea is to make the products a bit usable, not completely useless. You have to try very hard to use them. You could be annoyed, but most of us would laugh on the humour they bring.
