50 Cases Of Poor Design That Are Disasters Waiting To Happen

Design is meant to eliminate problems. To make our lives easier. However, that’s not always the case. Even though safety should be a key component when making any type of product, sometimes it falls out of the manufacturing equation and the consumer gets a hazard instead. And something to submit to the subreddit r/DangerousDesigns.

Created in 2014, this online community now has over 140K members, constantly sharing pics of exactly what its name suggests. Whether it’s a questionable architectural solution or misleading packaging, over the years they’ve amassed quite the collection! Continue scrolling and check out some of the most popular posts on the subreddit.

One of the subreddit’s moderators told Bored Panda they would describe it as “light-hearted.”

“Dangerous staircase designs are by far our biggest collection of content, so much so that I’ve had to make a rule so they can only be posted once per week,” the person who chose to remain anonymous said.

“Being a non-specific image subreddit, I wouldn’t say there’s much of a ‘community’ in the traditional sense,” they explained. “However, there are plenty of users who are dedicated to helping me and the other mods manage this subreddit and keep it off a higher quality than most subreddit with over 100K subscribers.”
