Functionally abstract. Door Stopper from Swiss designers PlueerSmitt is an abstract shape with a well defined usage. The flat part is playfully shaped as if the weight of the door pressed it down, while the strong, robust vertical part can easily be pushed in place by the foot. The natural untreated wood will gain patina from contact with its surroundings and users.
Dominic Plueer and Olivier Smitt are Swiss born desiners. They aim to offer something lasting, physically as well as mentally, as a contrast to a society which is sometimes more driven by consumption and replacement. In most of their work they interpret their own observations of already excisting products.
