Polish industrial designer Jan Kochański thinks so, anyway, and has the evidence to prove it. Making use of injection moulding technology, his dustpan has a hollow handle into which fine debris can be funneled and emptied out neatly. Gently curved edges keep dust away from the pan’s edges, and a horsehair and beechwood brush slides into the hollow handle for compact storage. dezeen_Sweeper-and-dustpan-by-Jan-Kochanski_ss_1dezeen_Sweeper-and-dustpan-by-Jan-Kochanski_3dezeen_Sweeper-and-dustpan-by-Jan-Kochanski_ss_2Images: Dezeen
