Uncomfortable Creations of Everyday Objects By Katerina Kamprani

Product designers are often preoccupied with making objects that are as useful as possible. However, Katerina Kamprani, an Athens-based architect and 3d modeller, has created a series of everyday objects called “The Uncomfortable” where just the opposite is true.

Instead of searching for the optimal solution to a problem, Kamprani has done the exact opposite, – she has carefully considered each objects intended function and then discovered the best tongue-in-cheek way to confound that function.
“When it comes to everyday objects, we have an idea in our minds what it could do. We all know what a fork does, and a spoon does, and all these everyday objects. So you have an expectation for that object. What I design is very close to that, but a bit different.”

“Many people get angry seeing this,” she says. “I don’t know why. They say, ‘Oh it just makes me so angry.’”
