Uncomfortable Objects

Architect Katerina Kamprani has created a wonderfully funny and utterly useless collection of everyday objects. Some are 3D models, others have been made into actual prototypes


KK: “All the objects […] are deliberately designed to annoy you. This project started after I failed to finish my studies in industrial design around 2011 and it has continued to grow ever since. My 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. But also to help you appreciate the complexity and depth of interactions with the simplest of objects around us. As a poor designer I have started the project by making conceptual 3d visualisations, but recently I have decided to spend all my savings to produce prototypes, because what would the world be if there were no Uncomfortable objects out there?
