Sweeper & Funnel by Menu is so simple in it’s core idea, that it becomes almost brilliant – it’s the kind of design you wish you’d thought of yourself, and the obvious value of the design makes people wonder why no one has thought of this before?
The clever details and good thoughts behind the design come from the Polish designer Jan Kochański. Jan Kochańskis’ key innovation is to use the dustpan’s handle as a funnel, making it so much easier for you to get rid of the dust. His intention was to create a beautiful, simple and refined sweeper – an object you would enjoy using.
The clever details and the beautiful design are the main reasons, why Menu collaborated with the designer Kochański. This is the first design produced ba Menu for the young designer and it was already awarded: Sweeper & Funnel became Wallpaper* Design award winner of the “Best Fireside” category. The set made of plastic, wood and horsehair convinced the jury.
