Piggy Bank / Lifestyle products

Piggy Bank
Piggy Bank

This design was inspired by the poem “Pipa tune” of Bai Ju-yi (772-846), a poet of Chinese Tang Dynasty. We transform it into life product as Piggy bank, when we insert different size of coins, the tinkling sound of rolling coins makes us recognize the beautiful wording and aesthetic Pipa sound in this poem. Consumers not only can feel the fun of the sound “Pearls dropping on the jade plate” but also recall the memory of the pinball machine in childhood. The visual fun makes users to enjoy the use of it because we can see the saving money and the moving of coins through the transparent material.
