An extract of the book “ The charm of Malfunction ”


I was not born to work (hard)



                                                    
                 

                         
 



There are surely some objects in our lives that we love and cherish even though they neither do work well nor have any practical function.

But why do we love them?
Sometimes even more dearly than the ones we actually use.

Could it be because of an emotional connection, that we love its appearance or the idea of owning it.

With my industrial design background, I learnt extensively on how to design a “good product” - visceral, behavioural and reflective design.


But what if I wanted to forget all of that and create a product that fails to function.


Is there any real value in something is not working?
