Katerina Kamprani is an architect living and working in Athens, Greece. As opposed to the opinion of the majority of product designers who create concepts to be useful to their users, Kamprani does completely the opposite. She designs products which are deliberately useless. She wants them to annoy you.
The project originates back in 2011 when she failed to graduate from industrial design and wanted to deconstruct the invisible design language. However, she does not stop at mere visualizations:
“As a poor designer I have started the project by making conceptual 3d visualisations, but recently I have decided to spend all my savings to produce prototypes, because what would the world be if there were no Uncomfortable objects out there?”
See her “Uncomfortable” project here or visit her official website.
