In 1978, James Dyson came up with the idea of a bagless vacuum cleaner that would be environmentally friendly and at the same time have significantly increased suction power, once relieved of the accumulated dust that clogs the paper bags of conventional vacuums. The "DC02 De Stijl" version was produced in a limited edition. It pays homage to the Dutch design movement's radical use of color to highlight function and form, turning a household appliance into an art object.
