PAUPER COIN COLLECTORBY ARTEK
This ceramic piggy-bank is inspired by an old Finnish tradition of placing a wooden statue of a pauper outside a church to collect money for the poor. For COMPANY the Pauper is reminiscent of Kaamos, or polar night, the darkest, coldest time of the year when the vulnerable are most in need. The Pauper Coin Collector belongs to a family of six handmade ceramic objects created by COMPANY for Artek’s FIN/JPN Friendship Collection.

Artek was founded in Helsinki in 1935 by four young idealists: Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen, and Nils-Gustav Hahl. Their goal was “to sell furniture and to promote a modern culture of living by exhibitions and other educational means.” In keeping with the radical spirit of its founders, Artek today remains an innovative player in the world of modern design, developing new products at the intersection of design, architecture, and art. The Artek collection consists of furniture, lighting, and accessories designed by Finnish masters and leading international designers. It stands for clarity, functionality, and poetic simplicity.
