TUBE DOORSTOPPER

TUBE DOORSTOPPER

Designed by Tetsuo Shibuya

This is a tube-shaped doorstop, though small, holds doors firmly in place.

When you’re not using it, just set it upright and it’s out of the way. These come in colors that coordinate with GUMHOOK.

” Relaxing holiday a cool breeze sneaks into the room through the window, causing a door to slam shut. I noticed the tube of paint in front of me somehow resembled the shape of a doorstop, so I wedged it between the door and the floor…

It’s the things we see in our everyday lives. Looking at them from a slightly different angle can reveal practical uses we never thought of before. I encourage all of you to check around the house fot these things, too. You just might discover something new! ” – Tetsuo Shibuya
