Looking good while cleaning up

Design house Alessi does a handheld vacuum cleaner


No, it's not a bionic dolphin. But we did consider opening a contest to see if anyone could guess what it was.

The latest offering from Italian design factory Alessi is actually a handheld vacuum cleaner. As typical of the work by the uber-design house, the "SG 67" shuns the utilitarian or mechanical forms of its competitors and opts instead for the sleek lines Alessi is famous for.

Luxurylaunches says the vacuum cleaner, which is made of stainless steel and thermoplastic resin, even has an "integrated crevice tool" to show that it's not afraid of getting down and dirty. We have no idea if it's as effective as a standard DustBuster, but at least we know it'll look good trying.
