20 Examples That Prove Designers’ Mistakes Can Make Us Suffer

It’s not a secret that some designers’ actions should be carefully monitored. Otherwise, they’ll create things that ought to be presented in exhibitions of madness! But even if you keep everything under control, you can miss something crucial that will cause unpleasant consequences. Like a glass dome on a lamp post that can become a magnifying glass and cause a fire, for example.

Bright Side wants to show you 20 designers’ mistakes that aren’t really funny but are actually dangerous. And at the end of this compilation, you’ll see why it’s so important to be careful while buying cheap floor mats for your car.

For those who love extreme sports

A ramp turning into a staircase

A toy that will result in many head and teeth injuries

A watering system

A door that should never be opened

A small pet or a child can easily fall down here.

A dome on this lamp is like a magnifying glass that burns grass when the sun shines through it.

If the train stops suddenly, passengers will collapse together with those seats.

A race track at a school stadium

A bike path with obstacles

A water stream that can really hurt you

Such patterns make it impossible to distinguish the stairs.

But these stairs are much more dangerous!

These windows reflect sunlight and scorch people and trees.

A fire exit you’ll never reach

Just an ordinary street in Kathmandu...

A tiny playground in the middle of a parking lot somewhere in Norway

The accelerator pedal always gets stuck because of this mat’s design.
