You desire a new car, or want to save money for the next holiday? With the unusual piggy bank “Fritz” from side by side you will be nearer to your goal every day on a stylish way. Fritz is a piggy bank with the shape of a wooden cube. What does visually connect it to the classical piggy bank is the stainless steel ring at its side. This one reminds us of the curled tail of a pig. Small notices can be fixed at the ring; they will remind you what you are saving money for.
The humorous design of the piggy bank Fritz was coined by Markus Gläser & Jan Eilts. Fritz is manufactured by the Ruperti workshop Altötting out of untreated oak wood for the German company side by side. The piggy bank appears including a lock and its according key.
The German company side by side represents the close cooperation of designers and handicapped people, just “side by side”. “Design with social character” was founded by the product designer Sabine Meyer in 2002 and brought to the market with the Caritas Wendelstein workshop. Meanwhile more than 30 designers, including the multiple awarded fpm München agency, create high quality and shapely living accessories to be used every day. This is how side by side enables social integration to handicapped people as well as participation at professional works.
