Sur les toits
Atelier Peekaboo recently created a minimalist ceramic piggy bank named Sur les toits. The English translation is "on top of the roofs" and refers to the place where they found inspiration for the shape of the design.
One easily inserts the money in the slot on top of the piggy bank and incase one needs the money, there is no need to crack the ceramic; just angle the piggy bank and shake gently.
The prototypes, ranging in colours and sizes, have been handcrafted by the Fribourg based ceramist Peter Fink.
Atelier Peekaboo was founded in 2008 by two Swiss designers from Neuchâtel. Damien Ummel and Thierry Didot met during their studies at the École Cantonale d'Art de Lausanne (ECAL). The two decided to strenght forces and by permanently questioning the industrial designer's role in a society surrounded by objects, they try to provide elements to respond to it.
