BIAUGUST'S LOVE GRENADE COIN BANK
For single name Taiwanese designers Owen and Cloud, good design is about the “focus on life and emotion. We see future and prosperity in the Love Grenade,” they say, and not the havoc the real thing can wreak. Whether you save for yourself, or donate it to your favorite charity, this is one bank with dividends: Proceeds benefit their cause, A.N.S.W.E.R. (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism). Owen studied design at the respected Musashino Art University, and Cloud at Tama Art U in Japan. With their degrees in hand and back in Taipei, the pair launched the Biaugust Creation Office in 2005, and since collected a shelf of prizes—all the while aiming to bring a bit of peace to the world.
