The Uncomfortable

quote [ The Uncomfortable is a collection of deliberately inconvenient
everyday objects by Athens-based architect Katerina Kamprani ]

I kinda liked it. Amusingly awkward objects. It's nice to see function following form intentionally for once as someone who always rolls my eyes at overdesigned junk.

I think the triple door would be great for managing kids and pets. I also have made the equivalent of the "uncomfortable broom" for my shop work surfaces by extending the handle of a normal dust brush from about eight or nine inches to more like four feet. Super handy for both the tops of 4x8 foot work surfaces, and even more for cleaning sawdust and scraps from under them where there's only about an eight inch clearance between storage shelves and the floor.

The first thing I thought when I saw the sideways broom was - "genius - I need that for my garage work benches immediately!"

The guy is totally drinking from that wine glass incorrectly. I would drink it from the top side of the egg by facing the opening away from me and then slowly tipping the bottom of the glass up.

On the plus side, none of them have proprietary one-use pods, mandatory apps, or bluetooth.

I really hope this person never gets into a position of power.

Perhaps that's why the world is the way it is.
