Stylish brushware

Industrial designers can improve the look and function of even the most mundane products. These Raven dustpan-and-brush sets and dishwashing brushes were designed by Peter Tasker in the early 1990s. They were still in production 20 years later, when they were selected for a 2011 exhibition to celebrate 125 years of the Wellington School of Design.
