An imaginative collection of drawings for dog lovers who love design, design lovers who love dogs
At first glance, a Welsh corgi may not seem to have a lot in common with an Arne Jacobsen Grand Prix chair. It takes a creative eye, such as Cristina Amodeos, and some imagination to see the chairs Y-shaped back in the dogs flared ears and long nose, and maybe even in the playful tilt of its head.
Amodeo maintains this design-conscious vision through twenty sets of matching dogs and chairs laid out side by side: a series of visual puns. Philippe Starcks Pratfall chair finds its match in the fox terrier, while the Billy sees itself in an Eames creation. Amodeos quirky illustrations and sharp eye make for a witty and playful package, the perfect gift for lovers of dogs, furniture, clever graphics, or all three. 49 color illustrations
