A month ago (to the day), we saw the fanciful side of Kawamura Ganjavian, with their "Ostrich" pillow design. In the meantime, they've largely been focusing on the architectural half of their design practice, including a handful of entries for building projects in Switzerland, but they continue to dabble in product design, as in their new project "Ductpan."
DUCTPAN is not a standard dustpan; it includes an ingenious funnel duct to simplify the process of emptying it out
It's the sort of thing that must have been thought up before, yet I can't seem to find any other examples of this sort of dustpan design—it might be the biggest innovation in dustpan design was the clip-in handle for the brush. (In fact, it looks like that brush might fit in the pan as well...)
In any case, it's a nice example of functionality + minimalism (and yet another curveball to Gizmodo, who didn't bite on my last lob...

I thought the mutlitool above was horrible until I saw this.
First, I'd like to see a dust bunny pass through that opening. I'm certain giving birth would be easier. And no cap? Now I have to balance the pan from pile of debris to pile of debris instead of holding it upright. And how easy will it be to clean that funnel? At least Rubbermaid put some thought into their design and it seems it was still unsuccessful.
It seems Core needs to do a little more work and a little less copy and paste.
And it had a lid...
Target had it for a while but wasn't a great seller.
