Everyday objects redesigned by Katerina Kamprani

The Uncomfortable is about as creative as it gets. This collection of ‘deliberately inconvenient everyday objects’ is designed by architect Katerina Kamprani and started as a ‘twisted sadistic design experiment messing up it’s creator’s head (and the heads of people she knows)’. Kamprani says of her work: ‘The goal is to re-design useful objects making them uncomfortable but usable and maintain the semiotics of the original item’. Who knew such useless objects could look so brilliantly designed.
