Objects made to function in a way that will make you cry with frustration

Objects made to function in a way that will make you cry with frustration

Katerina Kamprani’s easy sense of humor is prevalent in her artist bio: “Katerina used to dream of becoming a director while studying architecture. Then, she dreamt of becoming an animator while studying industrial design. Now she is working as an architect and 3d modeler based in Athens […] and dreams of becoming a designer.”

Most designers work arduously to streamline the function of their products. However, Kamprani’s ‘The Uncomfortable’ series, described as sadistic, features objects subtly yet impractically altered so that their function becomes an ironic joke. The series includes a broom with a parallel (verse perpendicular) handle, a partially closed-off spoon and galoshes with open toes. These objects exist as realistic 3D sketches, leaving the viewer to imagine their own immense frustration when putting them to use.

Let’s hope that Kamprani never designs a living space—she may bring the tenant to tears!
