Dyson Launches Smallest Vacuum Cleaner


In response to the reported decrease in size of the average home in the UK and Europe, and solving home storage issues, British manufacturer Dyson has launched a tiny vacuum cleaner only a fraction bigger than an A4 sheet of paper.

According to Dyson, “57% of Brits complain they don’t have enough space in their homes for storage”. The DC49 Multi Floor – weighing just 2.7kg – is 30% smaller than Dyson's previous DC47 Ball vacuum cleaner. Engineered to be its quietest yet, it’s the first to be powered by a digital motor – the same motor that powers the Dyson Airblade hand dryers.
