“Dédé” design Philippe Starck, 2019

by | Aug 5, 2019 | Suppliers

” 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.”

Alberto Alessi

Designed by Philippe Starck in 1996 and originally produced in die-cast aluminium, 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.

The re-edition of Dédé is composed of thermoplastic resin and is available in three versions: black, pink and with a Brown Metal PVD finish.

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.

Dédé is waiting.
For life? For love ?
Whilst he is waiting, he considers opening or closing the door.
Like me. »
