Design studio Mr. Simon offers an updated savings vessel, which rises in height as the bank is filled with coins.
In Spain, traditional ceramic piggy banks were not actually shaped like pigs, but were clay vessels known as hucha de barro. A design studio from Valencia, Mr. Simon, has created an updated version of these vessels that slowly ‘counts’ the accumulating money.
Called Dos Pavos – Spanish slang for 5 pesetas – the modern piggy bank is intended to save €2 coins. As the bank is filled up with coins, the ceramic top rises to reveal denominations on the wooden base.
Minimalist and modern, the Dos Pavos piggy bank is a beautiful way to save coins, and as it grows in height, you can rest assured that so does your wealth.
