Aalto Doorstop

Cast from the Alvar Aalto’s iconic Savoy Vase Wong raises serious questions about copying and the indulgent celebration of “design objects”. Remember that a Savoy vase is destroyed to make each doorstop, so the critique is more than formal, Wong is actually taking Aalto’s work out of circulation and replacing it with his own homage.

There is a limited edition of 12 doorstops each priced at $3,500.
