“During a visit to the metal material market, I saw a lot of thick aluminum tubes stacked. Out of my curiosity about the material, I purchased a 250mm diameter aluminum tube. When I put the other materials I purchased naturally into this tube, I found that this process as nature as putting a coin into a piggy bank. When I combined the tube and piggy bank to find out that it was fully available as a storage side table, I just needed to add a desktop to it, then it looks like a pig with a hat.”, the designer told us his inspiration of the design.
As a side-table, Pig not only satisfies the function of the side table, but also can store magazines and other sundries, it looks like a pig that makes the space more playful. Pig side-table has 2 different tube sizes, one with a diameter of 250mm and another with a 200mm, to meet different storage function requirements. Compared to other metal materials, Aluminum is very light, which reduces the weight of the product and reduces transportation costs.
