Cheeky (but respectable) Brit design house SUCK UK
is kind of like the Energizer Bunny in terms of product generation … they keep creating, and creating, and creating.
I’ve given shout-outs to three excellent SUCK UK products before — the award-winning, Tobias Wong-designed Sun Jar
, the Come In/Go Away Door Mat
, and the new-ish Solar Clock
. Here’s another fresh, eco-friendly design item for the home from my favorite merry, prank-y designers across the pond.
The cute-in-concept/subtle-in-execution Mouse Doorstop
is made from “rescued wood” (scraps and off-cuts of oak) and was created with this eco-mission in mind: “If objects are more useful, cheerful and altogether more friendly then people foster stronger relationships with them... and maybe slow down land fill.”
Order Mr. Mouse direct
from SUCK UK for £5.00. Also, check out the database of worldwide stockists
