Door Plates by Blomus

The language of the stick figure is international. Graphic and informative, these types of signs are all over public spaces. This set from Blomus has a European (specifically German) slant but that doesn't mean we can't have a little fun with them here.

Jump down to see how we'd take them off the door and decorate...

The spelled-out bathroom signs are a little hard to re-define and might be best used to simply identify the facilities. We do, however, love the idea of WC hung above the litter box. You have more freedom with the Lady and Gent figurative plaques. Hang one (or more) in a nursery, mount one in the garage (above the tools), or even hang both above the towel rack as a clever play on His and Hers.

The No Cell Phone plate could easily be hung wherever you want peace and quiet (in the dining room, above the bathtub, on a tree with a hammock). The No Urination sign can be cheeky but we'd like to see it staked outside in a flourishing garden. Push (Drücken) and Pull (Ziehen) are a natural metaphor for many things in life so what about hanging them together, above your workspace, to remind you of compromise.

Each circular plate from Blomus measures 3" and is made from stainless steel. They also carry most signs in a larger, square format.

Where would you hang this type of instructional artwork?
