Gifts for existential beings
Complicated Needs is a Berlin-based online shop for the discerned. We are providing products that intelligently humour their owners by satirically hinting to shared emotional needs, thus supporting comic relief, offering consolation, and contributing to the combative strength needed for positive change.
Essentially, Complicated Needs is meant to be a label for sceptical minds facing the crises and griefs of finite existence in an indifferent universe. For existentialists, humanists, eccentrics and philosophers of living, all with a sense of humour, all on the quest for a more fulfilled life. Hopefully, Complicated Needs is for you. If this sounds rather stilted in the context of an online gift shop, that’s okay. You may still be happy to have found a place to check out if ever in need for an unusual gift for that upcoming birthday party next Saturday.
“Complicated Needs is the brain child of designer Helge Simon. And while the texts on the webpage keep referring to “we”, actually, there’s mainly just me. Sorry for that. It’s not so bad though, as I am making the highest of efforts to provide all customers the greatest experience and service.” You can contact Helge Simon at firstname.lastname@example.org
