19 absolutely barmy and baffling design fails

Design trends can be mystifying – for example, who decided all small kitchen appliances should suddenly look like something your mum threw out in 1970 for being too old-fashioned, and why do all new buildings look like they were designed in Lego by a 6-year-old?

Occasionally, the designer seems not to have considered form or purpose or whether they should have got into design in the first place. These 19 pictures are perfect examples of those times.

18. A bad place to make the cut
