Doormat Scale is a doormat that’s
also a scale. It works like any normal bathroom scale, indicating your weight
in kilos whenever you step on it. It’s also a great doormat, since it’s
covered in coconut fiber that traps and hides a huge amount of dirt.
The back is made of latex, so the doormat won’t slip.
You’ll finally know how much your guests weigh: including your friends, your
mom, your dog, your sexy next-door neighbor, that hot plumber, the doorman, your
chubby friend, encyclopedia salesmen, your skinny friend, Jehovah’s witnesses,
etc. The Doormat Scale is sure to become a daily source of guaranteed
fun. It’ll give you a laugh and provide the perfect excuse to start a fun conversation.
||The Doormat Scale is
also a good way to force you to check your weight on a daily basis, since you’ll
have to weigh yourself every time you enter or leave the house. The Doormat
Scale will become your best ally when it comes to losing weight.
Nowadays, the Christmas holidays invariably entail a proliferation of gastronomic
events: family dinners, company cocktails, and various celebrations with different
groups of friends. In addition to the increased consumption of carbohydrates
(particularly in the form of special Christmas desserts), you also end up eating
more fats and proteins from meat dishes, as well as ingesting copious amounts
of high-calorie alcoholic beverages. This makes it easy to gain weight during
the Christmas season. The Doormat Scale is the perfect Christmas
gift. It’ll help you keep that inevitable weight gain in check.
Important warning: Not everyone will find the Doormat Scale amusing. A
lot of people consider the whole issue of weight taboo. They don’t feel comfortable
with their weight and it’s more than likely that they won’t be all that amused
by the Doormat Scale. That’s a risk you’ll have to take.
Thanks to the Doormat Scale, you’ll finally just how heavy your guests
really are. Try it.
The Doormat Scale was designed exclusively for Curiosite by Emilio Alarcón,
a Spanish designer with wide-ranging experience. Emilio himself explains: "I
realized that weight had become a social taboo. No one talks about how much we
weigh or don’t weigh, it’s almost like talking about money, no one talks about
how much money the make. I’d also been thinking that people were becoming a bit
too boring lately. We seem to find it hard to start conversations, even with
people who come knocking on our doors. The Doormat Scale is
my small own contribution to trying to solve these two day-to-day problems for
the First World.
