Those who practice obsessive-compulsive behaviors will appreciate these objects that express what it is like to be afflicted by this psychological disorder. Some of its symptoms include high attention to detail, meticulous planning and organization, which are concepts explored in these pieces. Artists like Patrick Smith and Thomas Wightman communicate these ideas in their work.

The OCD-afflicted will appreciate designs that keep things in your life a little more orderly, like gridded cutting boards to make perfectly cut vegetables, desks to keep objects on your workspace nicely aligned and shelving that keeps everything displayed nicely.

Unfortunately, it is not possible to control every aspect of your life, but hopefully these anxiety-reducing objects will bring some peace of mind to people who are prone to obsessive-compulsive behaviors.
