Lace-up shoes in the likeness of Barack Obama, a lighter that shows an aircraft about to collide with the Twin Towers, plush slippers shaped liked penises: this documents an exhibition at Berlin's Museum of the Thing that sought to get to the bottom of design's fascination with the ugly, the grotesque, the provocative and the non-functional. With 110 photos in colour.
