    That is what Man Ray did almost 100 years ago, isnt it?

    When I was applying to art school, the application asked for the design of a useless object. I could have started with a useful object then modified it to render it useless: like a coat hanger without the top hook, or like many of these art objects presented in this post. However, I wanted to demonstrate that there were many products on the market that one just did not need. My solution was a “spaghetti twirler” made from two forks facing each other, connected in the center. Why would one need that when one could just use two forks? Oddly, I later found that exact same product on the market. The marketplace is flooded with useless objects.

    Luxury products: a comb? a ball?

    I love the tennis racket! It looks like a useless kayak oar

    You can use the “Walking Stick” as a nunchuck.

    Just break the tennis racket in half and you can make a pair of snowshoes out of it.

    Nice interventions but I’ve seen them done before several times at art schools. Anyway what is up with the model? She looks like she’s stoning her head off…

  17. NIcé

    comb and cigar are really badly executed..

    If you think that soccer ball is useless you’ve never been to Africa…
