Swedish bank Money box by Kjell Westerlund

This is a fun little money bank created by the swedish designer and illustrator Kjell Westerlund in the sixties for the swedish bank Sparbanken. This is often mistaken for a Stig Lindberg design but that is wrong. I really love the illustrations which have a double function. You can mix up the characters for fun and you can adjust all three rings to a certain position to open it. So this time I’d say illustration follows function. Enjoy!
