The innovative product design of the Oripan is a minimalist approach to the mundane household object. The Oripan by New Zealand-based product designer Nicole Marshall is a redesigned dustpan and brush inspired by the intricate Japanese craft of origami. Designed to suit you and your lifestyle, the dustpan folds to discreetly tuck away when not in use, also offering undisputed manufacturing and distributing benefits.

By bringing together the two magnetic corners, the pan and handle of the dust pan are formed. While the functionality is pure, the tasteful simplicity is where this rubbish collecting object finds its beauty. Find out more about Marshall and her other creations at
