Design by Peter van der Jagt, 1994.
The Bottoms Up Doorbell breaks the mold of what a door bell should be. With the Bottoms Up Doorbell nothing is hidden. Two suspended wineglasses form the body of the door bell. The sound is created and symbolized by the crystal wineglasses. Guests are announced with a musical toast from the Bottoms Up Doorbell.
The door bell is included in collections at the Museo do Design (Lisbon, Portugal), Centraal Museum (Utrecht, The Netherlands), Gemeente Museum (The Hague, The Netherlands), The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (Montreal, Canada) and winner of the Red Dot Design Award (2007).
