Leah Ring and Holland Denvir launched “Object Permanence” as a way to breathe some life into L.A.’s emerging design sphere on their own terms. Each quarter, designers created one work based on a household object—clocks, candlesticks, ping-pong paddles—and presented them at one-night-only exhibitions.
After a two-year pause, the series is returning on Saturday at LAUN’s showroom with a dozen designers (Studio Sam Klemick, Constance Hockaday, Ben Tetro) riffing on the piggy bank. Sales proceeds will go toward Haven Neighborhood Services, a local organization that provides financial education to high-risk communities. As we grapple with economic uncertainty, saving for a rainy day seems more important than ever—and it all started with our childhood piggy banks.
