Deconstructing the Practicality of Everyday Objects

With the motto “Unlikely…but not Impossible,” Giuseppe Colarusso thinks outside the box and deconstructs the practicality of everyday objects to render them absolutely useless. The Italian artist helps us appreciate the ingenuity of those who came up with these products by adding slight modifications that brings each item’s specific design into perspective. With each adjustment here and there, Colarusso imparts a statement on how design really does follow functionality.
