Hopper is a minimal product design created by Zeyu Rong and Guglielmo Brambilla. Hopper is a carpet beater, reimagined in a new iconic and sculptural shape. The body is realized in solid beech wood, the fibers in rattan and the holder in leather. It can be used to beat the dust from pillows, duvets and carpets. The inspiration comes from a childhood memory, when the grandmother was hitting a sofa with a carpet beater, and the sound was echoing in the neighborhood. It was a morning ritual, a good habit we are gradually losing. Today it is less poetic, carpet beaters have almost disappeared and appliances have replaced them.
