Will you ever prefer to buy a failed product ? Of course not..
Well, Athens based architect Katerina Kamprani offers you to buy such products, and the weird thing is that she failed them purposely.
KK Studio created some epic product designs (yes, epic 😆 ) for all the wrong reasons. They call this project as An Uncomfortable Project, where they re-design some common household items to look complicated and weird purposely.
The goal of this project was to redesign usable objects making them uncomfortable but usable, while maintaining the semiotic of the original item.
Even their official Facebook page states the purpose of their existence –
The uncomfortable started as a twisted sadistic design project. It messed up it’s creator’s head (and the heads of people she knows). It exists in sketches and 3d visualizations and has no meaningful purpose. It’s a parasite in the world of materialism and design.
You can’t use them but you can surely buy them, and use them to surprise your friends or collect them as a sadistic art specimen.
Be ready to feel the uneasiness while scrolling through these 15 uncomfortable inventions. Happy Scrolling!!
