Kone Vacuum by Karim Rashid
Karim Rashid, the noted industrial designer, believes that design shouldn't be only about solving problems, but rather about a rigorous beautification of our built environments. In line with the spirit of this thought, he has designed the Kone hand-held vacuum for Dirt Devil. Possessing the look of a sculpture, and with a choice of 6 charming colors, this conical vacuum can easily blend with your furniture and walls. The device is cordless and can be placed in a docking station until you require it. Its unique vertical design ensures that it doesn't hog too much space.
With most designer household products, there is a tendency to compromise functionality over form. No such worries here. The more than decent 7.2V motor encased in the device will ensure an early retirement for all your normal dust busters. While it does not hold much promise of replacing your heavy duty vacuum tasks, it's powerful enough to do all those small cleaning chores around the house.
This elegant yet powerful vacuum is available for just $49.99.
