Fuzzy plates, bowls with holes, and slim staircases? Yes, please. In a world of ever-changing gadgets, endless updates, new apps, and beautiful architecture in the woods most of us can never be a part of, designer Katerina Kamprani has created The Uncomfortable Project, a set of absolutely useless—but beautiful and probing—objects. Does this make the pieces art? Absolutely. These designs by Kamprani lean towards a greater conversation about purpose and aesthetics, art and everyday objects. In fact, there are no clear-cut rules in Kamprani’s world, which is utterly refreshing in a solution-oriented culture. We sat down with Kamprani for a little more insight into these uncomfortable—and delightful—objects.

Where did you get the idea for these creations?
“The first uncomfortable just popped into my head. After that, I started thinking like that because it’s fun but also it helps me analyze the invisible design language behind everyday objects. I am an architect, but design is my passion.”

Is it an ongoing series? (We hope so)
“It is an ongoing series, although lately I am thinking more surreal than uncomfortable and I am not sure if the new objects will fit the “guidelines” of the Uncomfortable! I guess in these objects there is also a little bit of self expression and maybe I don’t feel so “uncomfortable” any more.”

How does this differ from your other work?
“The Uncomfortable is my personal project, for my clients I try to do “comfortable” things! But I think the core thinking behind the Uncomfortable is close to designing useful things, it all has to do with analyzing the user’s experience.”
