Ole Jensen got the idea to design a dustpan from his everyday work in his workshop. He always used a newspaper in one hand and a broom in the other to sweep up the dust and dirt with. The idea for a dustpan which was both functional and aesthetic was inspired by the simplicity of the newspaper.
This iconic product is an excellent example of Ole Jensen's minimalistic approach to making everyday life extraordinary through good design.
Ole Jensen explains: “Ideas often appear from a problem and it is often a simple solution that is the answer to the problem. I see myself as a fertile minimalist - everything counts - neither more nor less”.
The dustpan is in all its simplicity constructed from a piece of flat plastic. 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 or hang it on the wall. Perfect for those who like everything neat and tidy.
