A broom usually consists of following three elements; the fibres for cleaning insert in a plastic or wooden piece, the cylindric handle in aluminum, plastic or wood, and a hole or a string attached for hanging the broom on an occasional hook when not in use.
In this case the handle is becoming the ‘hole’, and so giving value to the object even when out of use, with a surprising expression and functionality.
The brush consists of natural horsehair combined with a minimum percentage of synthetic fibres to keep rigid, and they are insert in a piece of solid ash. The hook is an integrated part of the object turned in solid ash, and it is communicating with the function and aesthetic of the object even when apart, recalling the ab- sence of the broom as a graphical dot on the wall.
