Retired Italian UN worker Edoardo Flores started collecting 'do not disturb' signs as souvenirs in the 1990s and soon it turned into a full-sledged hobby. 

His collection began in 1995 after he hung up a Do Not Disturb notice from a Pakistan hotel in his office and a colleague remared on its quirkiness and suggested he start an official collection.

“From that day on I made it a point to take a ‘souvenir’ wherever I went,” Flores told Travel + Leisure

However, the quirkier the signs the betters, said Flores.

“I am always amazed by their variety in both design and messages,” Flores told T+L. “Original designs, unusual shapes and materials, witty messages, spelling mistakes, etc. Any creative combination of these makes the signs fascinating.”
