Jeremy Hutchison Goes Against the Grain of Mundane Products

In a world of mass production, Jeremy Hutchison decided to toss away the idea of standardized manufacturing and invite factory workers to make items with major design flaws on purpose.

The project is called Erratum, which comes from a Latin word that means a correction of a book or article. In this case, Hutchison looked at "correcting" the design of these regular items by making them completely faulty.

Based out of London, Jeremy Hutchison reached out to workers from China, India, Turkey and Pakistan and received half a dozen wildly ineffective, yet alluring pieces. There is a cheese grater with no holes, a skateboard with one set of wheels facing the wrong direction, a tennis racket with a racket on each end and a twisted and distorted golf club.
