Jan Kochański – Sweeper and dustpan

Most of the dustpans sold are a design of low aesthetic value. My intention was to design a simple, refined in form and functional solution – an object enjoyable to use. The key innovation is the use of the dustpan’s handle as a funnel. Thanks to that you won’t have problems in removing the dust even to a small bathroom dustbin. The set can be hanged in a cupboard or storeroom on the loop attached to the end of the sweeper. The sweeper is made of natural horsehair and beechwood because natural hair sweeps better than its synthetic equivalent. The wooden handle covered with oil is nice to touch, well balanced and comfortable to hold.
