Chindogu – Creating Useless Objects

I caught wind of this from a great 99 PI episode that you can find here. Chindogu is the art of creating things that are not entirely unuseless. From the website:

Chindogu are man-made objects that have broken free from the
chains of usefulness.

They represent freedom of thought and action:

The freedom to challenge the suffocating historical dominance of conservative

The freedom to be (almost) useless.

Highly encourage design interested folks to check this out.
