This Artist’s Re-Imagined Useless Household Products Are Guaranteed To Make You Cringe

Most everyone has encountered everyday objects that make them feel a little off. Weird art is one thing, but when there is a complete disregard for functionality by weird household objects, it can be downright baffling. While most of us usually turn away from those uncomfortable objects as quickly as we can, Athens-based architect Katerina Kamprani decided to lean into the discomfort and explore further. Thus Kamprani has made a career out of creating odd out of everyday objects. 

According to Kamprani, her project – titled “The Uncomfortable” – began when she failed to finish her studies in industrial design around six years ago. The project has her finding unique, , and often very frustrating ways of tweaking things we see and use every day. She subtly shifts fundamental design aspects of everyday objects – like wine glasses or chairs – in ways that are both hilarious and deeply unsettling.

Kamprani wants to highlight some of the genius architectural designs that we take for granted on a daily basis. Kamprani’s designs speak for themselves so read on to see her most ingenious and weird household objects.
