the bathroom sink in a fancy hotel.
You can tell it's a fancy hotel because it has
a marble sink and designer knobs. Unfortunately,
the designer didn't have people
try to turn the knobs with
soap on their hands because the knobs
are about as smooth as glass and
almost impossible to turn. This is an example
of something being designed a certain way
because it looks
good rather than because it works well.
well-designed object can be designed to
both look good and be easy to use.
