The Washing up Bowl and Brush designed by Ole Jensen for Normann Copenhagen.
In the production of the washing-up bowl, it was important that its hand-kneaded character came to expression and produced that special aesthetic look that we associate with handicraft. The result was very satisfactory - a shape that is both flexible and durable, in a new, strong material that can also be produced in a wealth of colours. This washing-up bowl adds a poetic element to a repetitive and sometimes tiresome routine, and can be characterised as a piece of industrial handicraft.
Like the aforementioned dustpan brush, the washing-up brush is made of Chinese pig bristles bent and glued to the wood. The brush is produced according to old production techniques, and by the time it is finished, it has received the attention of no less than sixteen female hands.
The washing-up bowl was awarded the prestigious International Design Plus Price in 2002
