Die Serie "The Uncomfortable" stammt von der griechischen Designerin und Architektin Katerina Kamprani. Sie gestaltete für Alltagsobjekte ein alternatives Design mit viel Frustrationspotential.
"The Uncomfortable is a collection of deliberately inconvenient everyday objects. It started as a twisted sadistic design project. It messed up its creator's head (and the heads of people she knows). It exists in sketches and 3-D visualizations and has no meaningful purpose. It's a parasite in the world of materialism and design.
I first started the project for no apparent reason other than I wanted to design something, and making things uncomfortable was challenging and amusing to me. While the project evolved steadily I found out other people have thought in a similar way (Jacques Carelman, Jeremy Hutchison, even Dominic Wilcox). Lately my ideas have evolved into more surreal than uncomfortable, like the watering can, a bit more symbolic, it has no use at all.
My project is very carefully designed to annoy, it feeds from the design of each original object and makes a little joke. I am hoping it is not in the list of 'another badly designed object' but in the list of 'extraordinary deliberately badly designed object(s).'"
