This Designer Creates Incredibly Useless Designs

Posted on Design 15

Clever design is supposed to make our lives a bit easier, right? Well not necessarily, as the Athens-based architect Katerina Kamprani proves with her project ‘The Uncomfortable’.

Instead of designing useful tools, Katerina is doing the exact opposite by creating these deliberately inconvenient everyday objects that would make simple everyday tasks like drinking your morning coffee – a real challenge.

And while these sure are pretty absurd, I could swear I sense the artist hid a bit deeper meaning in here… What do you think it is? Let’s take it to the comments below.
