Design: Money box with high explosive content

May 1, 2016 § 2 Comments

Presenting my first functional object, inspired by Henry Van De Velde, a Belgian painter, architect and designer of furniture, interior, clothes, book covers, silverware, dinner sets, candle holders, etc.

Famous as one of the founders of the Art Nouveau style, late 19th Century – first half of the 20th century. He was very inventive in designing functional objects and had a sharp eye for aesthetic quality. Through out his long life his style developed from high aesthetic ornament to a more modern, minimalistic style. He designed several country houses, schools, a theatre, the Nietzsche Archiv in Weimar, Germany, the Library of Ghent University with the booktower, Ghent, Belgium.

He also designed a beautiful silver money box, unfortunately I didn´t found a picture of it. You´ll find it in this catalogue:

Passion, Function, and Beauty: Henry van de Velde and His Contribution to European Modernism

In times where you have to pay for your bank deposits, banknotes are safer under your pillow. It´s an interesting challenge to re-invent the money box, using mainly found objects, coffee and peanuts cans glued together penetrated with electricity cables and metal wire.
