COLLECTIONS : LUIGI COLANI - ELEPHANT BANKTags : collections, shared collections .
In the 1960's the Dresdner banking company hired German designer Luigi Colani to create a money box for them and he came up with the amazing iconic Elephant Bank (seen above and below). I just love them. The bright solid colors. So simple yet sophisticated. I've never come across any during all of my treasure hunting but maybe someday soon I will. Until then I'll just admire the one's I spot elsewhere. There are surely a good handful for sale on eBay but this impressive collection belongs to the Flickr user Jo Je Bin and boy is this a wonderful collection. What you think, aren't they amazing? Happy Monday sweet friends :)
