Piggy Bank is a minimalist design created by France-based designer Selma Durand. This object, halfway between a pin-tray and a piggy bank, is used for storing money. A copper tray fills up and lowers as the user empties coins from his pockets or purse. When the ceramic container and copper tray reach the same level, the coins’ value is about enough to buy a stamp, a coffee or a baguette. Technically, the mechanism which allows the measure to be made is found in the Roberval balance. As the coins are stacked, the weights level themselves.
