Industrial designer Troels Seidenfaden (also Danish) created this chic t-shaped solution to the perils of ice and frost using his extensive experience at his eponymous design firm.
Made from stainless steel, the weighty tool lives up to its Nordic heritage through simple functionality and, of course, beauty. (Click image at left for detail.)
For a more pared-down version (also produced by Stelton) Klaus Rath uses stainless steel and rubber-coated hard plastic to avoid scratches.
The Danish designer's hinged device features one side for scraping snow and another for ice and folds flat for easy storage.
It's available from Dansk Design for £28.
