Adorable little pigs have always captured popular imagination, and the Hausschwein provides the chance to live out this dream in one’s own home. As a practical piece, it fulfils many functions: a two-in-one ride-on, a storage toy and an aesthetic design piece for the home. Simply remove the nose to use as storage for all kinds of objects. Both a magical companion for kids, and a stylish furniture piece for parents, it lets parents imbue the next generation with creative taste through a piece of design-focused furniture.
The Hausschwein is designed as a container because with children comes a lot of stuff. Not only is this object fun to fill up, it sits around the house in a beautiful way. Lovingly designed in the Netherlands and produced in Germany, the Hausschwein is made from durable Polyethylene plastic, weighs 4.18kg, and measures 745cm in length, 338cm in width and 401cm in height. All parts of the pig are made using a rotational moulding technique so that there is no wastage of materials. With a matelassé pattern on the pig’s hindquarters, this endearing piggy is a charming addition to any household and a fun friend for the whole family.
This creature exemplifies Cybex’s innovative design principles – distinctive design, superior safety and clever functionality – and with a bit of wit makes it complete. An iconic product of Cybex’s “Parents Collection”, it is dreamed up by internationally celebrated product and interior designer and Moooi creative director, Marcel Wanders. This home accessory exemplifies the highest level of innovation, functionality and design for the most discerning and fashionable of families.
