The Fly Wing Flapper by Dutch industrial designer Ramon Middelkoop, who teaches product design at the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam, is a plastic fly swatter with a lacy design that echoes the pattern of the annoying insects’ wings. While it’s certainly better looking than the typical hardware store variety of swatter, we wonder if the openings are a tad too large for an average-sized pesky housefly. Still, we applaud the effort to elevate the mundane.
