Les feuilles mortes se ramassent à la pelle,
Tu vois, je n'ai pas oublié,
Les feuilles mortes se ramassent à la pelle,
Les souvenirs et les regrets aussi,
Et le vent du nord les emporte,
Dans la nuit froide de l'oubli,
Tu vois, je n'ai pas oublié,
La chanson que tu me chantais.

Jacques Prévert & Joseph Kosma.

Ideas often come to him from daily life. When his own classical electric doorbell was broken, Jean-Francois D'Or experimented with a music box outside his entrance, and when he noticed that it conjured up a smile on every visitor’s face, even the police were well disposed, he decided to turn this makeshift object into a real doorbell. It had a fabulous effect, so I realized I had to do something with it.

Clin d’oeil, doorbell face mirror shines your portrait reflection upside down.
To arrange your hair before the door opens, nevertheless as the image is upside down it’s more of a clin d'oeil to make us smile even more broadly.
Welcome home.
