About

Dustpan & Broom

The Dustpan & Broom is both functional and aesthetic. The dustpan is in all its simplicity constructed from a piece of flat plastic, shaped to fit comfortably in the hand. The thin and flexible material makes it easy to collect all kinds of dirt. The broom is made of wood and natural bristles and combines traditional craftsmanship and modern production, ensuring durability and a simple expression of design. 

Created with a keen twist, the Dustpan & Broom allows you to clean with precision and style, complete with a small resting hole to perfectly set the brush in the dustpan. You can also hang the Dustpan & Broom on the wall. This way it is always easy to get hold on it when you need it.

Available in light grey, dark grey, black, light blue and red.

Ole Jensen

Ole Jensen is educated from The Arts and Crafts College in Kolding and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. Since 1985 Ole has taught at several design schools, exhibited his works in most of Europe, and co-founded and served as a member of several design associations and councils. He has won a number of famous design awards and been featured in several publications.

“Ideas and materials are closely related. The idea takes its form only when working with the material. I only trust a particular form when I have touched it with my fingers. I am able to communicate with the manufacturer as well as the end user through the particular object, and I see myself as a fertile minimalist. Everything counts. Neither more nor less! I aim at finding the uniqueness in the simple design and vice versa. Every single day brings new design challenges which I would like to take up”.

A bit of female touch

One day in his workshop, Ole Jensen became irritated at all the dust and clay that constantly was laying around the place. He swept the floor holding a folded newspaper in one hand and sweeping the dust into the newspaper with the other one. A simple and straightforward movement which created the basic idea for a new kind of dustpan.
