“Dédé is waiting. For life? For love? Whilst he is waiting, he considers opening or closing the door. Like me.”-- Philippe Starck
Originally designed in 1994 and produced in die-cast aluminum, the Dédé doorstop is a sculptural figure that gives life to one of the many anthropomorphic characters typical of the French creator’s poetic imagery. An unconscious world transformed into an expressive and functional object.A perfect example of Starck’s creative universe, Dédé is an object capable of surprising, conveying emotions and recalling memories. An evocative form becomes a familiar everyday companion, a powerful presence in the domestic environment.
“Philippe Starck is a living example of my dream: design, real design, is always highly charged with innovation toward the world of manufacturing and trade bringing results that no longer need to be justified solely on a technological or market level.”
