Upside-Down is a design project involving a different approach to household objects and furniture. The concept starts with the idea of hospitality and guests, since not all guests are really welcome.
This new family of interactive objects works on an upside-down basis. The keywords for each side of the object are function and anti-function; where function refers to what an object does in the usual sense,
such as a chair is supposed to be for sitting on, or a mug is used for drinking from. Anti-function, on the other hand, is not simply the removal of this main function, but its replacement with exactly
the opposite of that function, such as a chair built to avoid sitting or a mug you cannot drink from.
