Himitsu means secret in Japanese. Like the secret boxes, this money box seems impossible to open. Only its owner knows the way that provides access to the content of the box. To open Himitsu, you have to unscrew the lid with a coin, what creates a subtle link between the object and its function. The outline of the Himitsu money box is inspired by the polygonal geometry of some coins.
A money box, that is impossible to open without knowing its secret.
