Manufacturing Process: Metal Bubble Forming/ Plastic Injection Molding, Investment Casting, Veneer Laminate Wood Bending, CNC Wood Machining

Beyond meeting the functional requirements my goal was to design an object that broke the mold of what this object ‘should’ look like. That is to say a dustpan and brush that would live comfortably outside the broom cupboard.
