Human beings don’t always build things to last. Sometimes, they make such obvious mistakes that casual observers can’t believe they didn’t notice their design idea flaws from the get-go. Alas, we’re all flawed (much like some designs!) and most of us have a blind spot when it comes to the things we’re involved in.

Nonetheless, bad designs are a lot of fun to look at and laugh at. And there’s no place who does it better than the ‘Crappy Design’ subreddit! We collected some of the best, newest, crappy design fails from the Reddit community, so scroll down and enjoy. Remember to upvote your fave product designs gone wrong, and drop us a comment telling us why you loved hating them.

We at Bored Panda love creative designs, but we also adore really bad ideas, too. When you’re done looking through our awesome list, check out our posts about epic design fails, the very worst kitchen designs, epically bad bar and restaurant designs, and structural nightmares. We’re sure you’ll love these funny fails.

There are plenty of examples of bad design out there, but we can find some excellent designs here and there. And good design involves uniting the concept you have with the physical end-result of the product.

For instance, Ikea talks about how its design is “democratic” in that the company believes “good home furnishing is for everyone.”

You’ve heard that “function over form” is an important aspect of design, but have you ever considered that they can be (and should) united into one seamless whole?

Postmodernist Frank Lloyd Wright, who dedicated his life to crafting organic designs, coined the phrase “form and function are one.” According to him, form and function ought to be in “a spiritual union” instead of vying for dominance over one another.

In a previous interview with Bored Panda, the moderators of the ‘Crappy Design’ subreddit said that the community changed over the years.

“The original motivation for the subreddit was to point out crappy designs. Nowadays, most subscribers probably come here for entertainment. However, it is common to have meaningful discussion here on why or why not something is crappy design,” they said.
