Oink Oink

Piggy banks by Japanese design firm Nendo at Japan's Isetan department store as part of Tokyo Design Week's Designtide. Piggy banks date back to medieval Europe. People saved their pennies in clay jars called "pygg". The word-play unleashed the piggy bank we love today and Nendo's version of the porcine penny holder "pyggy bank" is made of unglazed clay in reference to its historical cousin.
