Charles & Marie: Time Is Money
According to Karim Rashid, a piggy bank deserves more attention. Of course, his sophisticated designs are void of an actual piggy but still serve their purpose. "These ubiquitous objects need perpetual new ideas, new personalities and new character to be more animated," he says. "But in an abstract way, not as kitsch or literal redesign." This hourglass shaped bank, aptly named Time is Money, draws the important connection between the two valuable concepts. Much like the sands in an hourglass that measure time, the coins drop into the piggybank and build a tiny fortune when you practice a bit of patience.
