Moneyphants Pink and Moneyphants Blue

Danish architect Jørgen Møller designed the elephant shape for a bottle opener in 1987 with his grand child, transforming it into a money box in 2010.


In 2011 Swiss designer Alfredo Häberli developed the next generation of Moneyphant, his design being the addition of two small elephants that nest wthin a larger one. These are made of solid oak and fit into the original polished stainless steel elephant.

In addition to the stainless steel original available online, we also have the well loved elephant money box in light blue and rose in store. Although this product is not a toy it would be the perfect gift for a christening, a gift that is timeless, strong, elegant and functional - and so cute.

Materials: Powder coated stainless steel and ABS plastic. 
Measurements: L 170 x W 60 x H 125 mm


This video animation celebrates the process of design. showing the creative process of Alfredo Häberli as he designs a range of kitchen accessories for Georg Jensen.
