Ole Jenson Dustpan and Broom
Brooms, Dusters & Mops
The dustpan is in all its simplicity constructed from a piece of flat, malleable plastic (polypropylene), 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. It is the perfect melding of traditional craftsmanship combined with industrial production.
