Welcome to the weird, wild and wide world of Areaware.
We say “wide” because Areaware make so many wonderful and wacky objects – we’re not sure which category to place them in. This New York-based studio of design aims to make your home objects as unusual as possible, while still retaining their useful factor – and getting a laugh or gasp of surprise from you along the way.
Intriguing objects don’t need to be so because they’re strange…they can also be highly beautiful, especially in the hands of Harry Allen and his Reality collection for Areaware.
Made from resin and marble, the Bank In the Form of a Pig is a testimony to Allen’s unique eye for the artistic. Taking the idea of a traditional piggy bank literally, this adorable money bank is cast from a real pig. It features a handy coin slot on the top of the pig, and a removable cork plug on the base to allow for easy access to coins. With a shiny gold finish, and a realistic pig design, this gorgeous money bank will look simply charming on your shelf at home.
