Designers show off their sophisticated takes on garden variety household wares by lifting them from their common origins. First up is a simple broom and dustpan molded of polypropylene to resemble a flat sheet of newspaper. Its creator Ole Jensen discovered that newspaper and an erasing brush made for a much simpler cleanup inside his clay-covered workshop. And while you may think this is another kitchen necessity, the fire red object that looks like an extinguisher is actually a modernized take on the watering can complete with a hose-inspired spout. Forget the Crock-Pot with this pod-shaped slow cooker that turns the humble cookware into a mod pod-shaped terracotta contraption. But most revamped of all is a “gold bar” doorstop that is certainly an upgrade from a wedged sliver of wood.
