"I like the idea of objects becoming figurative and not always completely reflecting their functionality. Sometimes I get bored of being too serious." Tom Dixon

In the boardgame Cluedo, domestic items become murder weapons. The idea of using a shoe as a doorstop seemed natural, because that's what you do with your foot. And you always need a non-specific heavy object at home - to attack a burglar, bang in a nail, crack a nut or just keep a door open.
