The Useless Objects of Katerina Kamprani

Katerina Kamprani is an Athens-based architect whose design project, The Uncomfortable, intentionally evokes feelings of extreme discomfort and frustration. Described on Kamprani's Facebook page as 'a collection of deliberately inconvenient everyday objects with no meaningful purpose.'

It's suggested that 'Part of the discomfort comes from trying to imagine using these projects. It sheds some light on the connections between motor skill and the brain. Looking at these objects feels like an error message has been delivered to the nervous system: it creates the most delicious malaise and disquiet.'

Hmm. Not so sure about that. But I love the playful inventiveness of it.

  1. Nothing really make me feel uncomfortable, more a sense of some people have way too much time on their hands.
