Many of you will be familiar with the proverb, ‘Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves’, and with this comes the need for a place to store said pennies. Whilst many will resort to a characterful Piggy Bank, or a container of sorts, why not add an element of playfulness? Well, that’s exactly what the Hammer Bank has been designed for.
Designed on the philosophy of Familiarism; the idea of connecting familiar product interactions with new experiences, this hammer-like money-bank encourages destruction! Not only does this bring an element of excitement to the product, but due to its one-use nature and inevitably destructive end, it introduces the incentive to save… and not repetitively dive into the savings!
Aside from the ‘X’ shaped coin-slot on the top of the device, it features an uninterrupted, unibody form, giving it a satisfyingly clean aesthetic… that is until it shatters into a million pieces on your desk!
