Sweeper / Vacuum Cleaner

Sweeper
Sweeper

Imagine if the waiter had a vacuum cleaner at a fine dining restaurant.

Tables could be cleared efficiently
with minimum disruption.

Our challenge was to design a vacuum that exudes elegance while being a humble and modest servant of the waiter.

We looked at the waiter, his gestures, the settings on the table for inspiration. Inspiration also came from the cutlery, the tools used by the waiters and most importantly the crumb sweeper, a tool used to clear crumbs or food off the table.

Could we make the process of cleaning more efficient, while still maintaining the gracefulness and flair of using the crumb sweeper?
