The dustpan is in all its simplicity constructed from a piece of flat plastic, 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.
In his workshop, Ole Jensen became irritated at all the dust and clay that constantly lay about the place. He bent down to sweep the floor, holding a folded newspaper in one hand and sweeping the dust into the newspaper with the other. A simple and straightforward movement that, together with the newspaper implement, created the basic idea for a new kind of dustpan - one that, in the spirit of the Dogma films, you might call a hand-held dust blade.
With this method there is no lip to cause the small line of dust to remain.

Jan Anderson and Poul Madsen teamed up to create the Normann Copenhagen brand in 1999 with a vision to make a difference in the design industry. Three years later they launched the first product, the lamp Norm 69. Within five years more than 38 products followed, as well as collaborations with established design names and new talent from around the world.

In 2005, Jan and Poul moved from a small design store at Strandboulevarden to an old 1700m2 cinema at Osterbro in Copenhagen. They were determined to create a unique retail environment that would add something new and exciting to Copenhagen. Today the store has not only won several prizes as the coolest design store in Copenhagen, but also serves as a platform for great parties, fashion events, art exhibitions as well as small happenings. Normann Copenhagen loves to challenge the conventional design rules. This is why you will find traditional materials put into untraditional use such as a washing-up bowl in rubber, a vase made out of Silicon and last but not least a dog made out of plastic. Normann Copenhagen is a way of living - a mindset, a way to view the world in a new and different way.

“Ideas and materials are closely related. The idea takes its form only when working with the material. I only trust a particular form when I have touched it with my fingers. I am able to communicate with the manufacturer as well as the end user through the particular object, and I see myself as a fertile minimalist. Everything counts. Neither more nor less! I aim at finding the uniqueness in the simple design and vice versa. Every single day brings new design challenges which I would like to take up” - says Ole Jensen
