"Cone" is an iconic object that shows that an idea can be based on a simple geometric form. The conical shape beats two birds with one stone. While the thicker end of the cone accommodates the bristles the thinner end makes a perfect handle. The dustpan features the possibility of useing it in two directions. Forward and to the side. If the dirt is on the dustpan, it can simply be turned upright, to empty the dirt even into a small trash can. The broom picks up on formal and functional details of the dustpan and hand brush, but uses them in a new context. Due to the conical shape of the stem, the broom can be easily assembled. Three ordinary items that you don't want to hide in a cupboard anymore.
