The Open Stool Features a Groove to Hold Opened Doors

 - Aug 29, 2010
We've all experienced that door that just won't stay open without assistance, and that's where the Open Stool fits in. Designed specifically with this simple yet frustrating problem in mind, it features a notch that allows doors to lock in and stay open.

The brainchild of Portuguese designers Cláudio Cardoso and Telma Verissimo, the Open Stool features a simple design. Made out of wood, it has one strip of color, easily indicating that there is a dual purpose to the clever notch other than simply looking pretty. I think every door should be accompanied by the Open Stool.
