Saving up loose change isn't just a smart venture and money lesson for children, it is something that adults can benefit from as well; enter Sur les Toits. It is a modern and minimalist change holder that is meant to bring to mind the look of classic piggy banks. Although abstract, its fleshy pink color as well as round snout is undeniably inspired by the childhood staple.

Designed by Atelier Peekaboo, a mysterious French studio founded by two ECAL students, Sur les Toits boasts a sleek shape made out of ceramic. Perfect for front entrances, where it is natural for people to dump the change they've accumulated throughout the day, it, thankfully, doesn't need to be shattered to access the money dropped inside. The snout provides the perfect opening for the next day.
