Lennart Van Uffelen created this table as a part of his Functionality Kills The Fun – series.
His statement: Functionality is overrated! Products are more interesting when they are performing their task partly or even poorly. Most of the time the image or the emotional value that the object generates is what makes it so fascinating. In cases where the functionality is subject to the image you see that they are more open to add value to the individual user. Playing with the limits of functionality leads to questioning yourself as a designer. It’s important to design a strong relation between consumer and object where humor and image are equally as important as the function.
