Libman Broom Ideation: 2006 – Tres Design
This project started out with a big ideation session with some of Steve’s design students from UIC. They had some great ideas, but making successful products from student sketches is pretty tough. Out of the student ideation we came up with 4 ideas: 2 broom and dustpan combinations where the broom could be used to lift the dustpan so you wouldn’t have to bend all the way down to the floor to pick it up, a telescoping broom handle with matching dustpan, and a fold down scuff remover.
