"You can choose between sleeping in a circular bed with a seam running down the middle, or you can have two sofas with no relationship between the backrest and where your legs would go."
"I don't like how people can just pop earbuds in without paying careful attention. This fixes that."
"Because people can't afford to be bored for even one second."
"You can use this like a chaise longue, or open it up, flip it over and use it like a chaise longue that takes up twice as much space."
"I wanted to design a bed that makes both sleeping and having sex more difficult."
"Bananas can be tough to cut into slices. So I designed this plastic object, which is as difficult to clean as Venetian blinds, to solve the problem."
"I don't know about you, but I can't have a conversation with someone unless my legs are interfering with theirs."
"Conventional bookshelves let you see all of the books at once, making them too easy to scan. My design forces you to walk all the way around the thing to find the book you're looking for."
"I wanted to design a piñata for bears."
I can't write a caption for this one because WAFFLE TONGS. I give up.

That bookshelf/chair is almost as good as Pantone's ultra-usable carousel of plastic tints.
You know, when I saw that chair (and read Rain's snark), my first thought was: "Knowing the sort of designers who churn out this crap, I wouldn't be surprised if the freaking book ring spins for 'convenient' perusal."
Reminds me of Pantone's ingenious carousel of plastic colors. Super easy to read the color designation and even easier to put them all back after using them!

I’m a lapsed industrial designer. I was born in NYC and figured I’d die there, but a few years ago I abandoned New York to live on a farm in the countryside with my wife. We have six dogs.
