The lightest, handiest & best dustpan and brush designed. Its flexible edge leaves nothing behind.
Dustpan : Polypropylene - broom: Beech with natural bristles. 24 x 31 cm. These two simple tools are intended to help make your daily cleaning less trivial and more enjoyable. Designed by Ole Jensen. In his workshop, Ole Jensen became irritated at all the dust and clay that constantly lay about the place. He bent down to sweep the floor, holding a folded newspaper in one hand and sweeping the dust into the newspaper with the other. A simple and straightforward movement that, together with the newspaper implement, created the basic idea for a new kind of dustpan - one that, in the spirit of the dogma films, you might call a hand-held dust blade. The dustpan is in all its simplicity constructed from a piece of flat plastic, with an indentation created by a simple slit. It also has a hole, through which you can push the brush handle to hang the set on the wall. The brush is made of specially-produced wood and Chinese pig bristles, with the long hairs bent around a rod and glued to a wedge in the wooden handle. In normal brushes the bristles are passed through the wood, but this old technique produces an extremely durable brush, as well as underlining the overall design impression. By the time it is finished, the brush has passed through eight pairs of female hands, and is the epitome of traditional craftsmanship combined with industrial production.
