Design fails are everywhere around us, from relatively innocent ones like poorly designed baths to massive city planning disasters which make everyone’s life hard. Good design requires a certain dose of skill and ingenuity to make them both practical and interesting but it takes one small oversight to turn the best of designs into a true nightmare.

We all know how annoying it can be to buy a much-advertised product only to find out it’s been poorly designed and barely functional. When that happens we often wonder: ‘Who approved these’? because we can’t wrap our heads around the fact someone’s actually thought these designs are going to work.

Prepare to be amazed, slightly annoyed, and to have some good laugh while looking at these 70 outrageously bad designs you won’t believe exist.
