At DesignTide Tokyo 2010, Nendo has released a new set of Piggy Banks for Isetan Department Store. The project, entitled Pyggy Bank, plays off the historical origins of saving coins in a unglazed reddish clay vessel called a pygg—Nendo has interepreted this as a fired clay vessel with a snout, not quite porky, but certainly porcine.
