I include in them objects for protection as well as others like the pliers we use to catch the bread in the toaster or furniture glides or draught excluders for example.
All these objects are specifically created to compensate for other’s defaults or misconception.
They are pointing a lack in the functionality of some objects and their status is blurred since we don’t use them for themselves but in relation to another one. They are totally functional, rarely well-designed and their absurdity is sometimes blatant. In a world of perfect objects, they wouldn’t exist.TutorsAnniina Koivu, Brynjar Sigurðarson
