Ilona, a family of brooms and brushes


Design: competition paper as part of studies at the University of Design of Applied Sciences, Lahti, Finland / 2007
Realization and production: Sokeva, Finland


Design, concept and industrial design of the brush, broom and dustpan family

We designed a family of brushes, brooms and dustpan for the Finnish company Sokeva, which employs blind people and people with visual impairment.

The entire production is made of natural materials.

The main feature of the products is the three-point mounting (most similar products have a single-point mounting). This significantly contributes to the strength and thus extends the product’s lifespan.

At the same time, the three-point mounting provides an insight into the structure of the product, which is aesthetically designed.
