The childhood joys of penny-collecting have been re-imagined with Nest's modern piggy bank. Thoughtfully crafted with porcelain and steel, this 3D-printed figure is both elegant and functional.

Available in monochromatic color schemes, the minimalist jars feature a small slit at the top for coin storage. Traditional variations of the fixture include a hidden hole to collect the money, making Nest's piggy bank a high-stakes product. The artist behind this design was inspired by the concept of "no reward without sacrifice." In light of this paradox, the piggy bank must be smashed in order for the contents to be retrieved.

The nostalgia-inducing product is situated on the intersection of art and object, serving as a functional, yet sculptural piece of home decor.
