Moneyphant Coin Collector Design by Alfredo Häberli and Jørgen Møller for Georg Jensen
Georg Jensen‘s Moneyphant with Twins features two small elephants that nest within the larger one. Designed by Alfredo Häberli, the oak–wood baby elephants fit like a puzzle pieces into the original polished stainless steel form.
The original Moneyphant was created by Jørgen Møller with the help of his great-grandchild. Møller’s first elephant design, a bottle opener, was born in 1987 with the help of his grandchild. As the Elephant became recognized worldwide, Møller then designed more elephants, such as a key ring and the Moneyphant for storing coins. The Moneyphant contains all that Scandinavian design has become known for: elegance, strength and functionality.SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW SHOP NOW
