Dogs and Chairs - Designer Pairs
Charmingly random, wonderfully whimsical. A book about chairs. And dogs. The perfect gift for lovers of dogs, furniture, clever graphics - or all three. A kooky choice for the teen market.
Publisher's description: What does Alvar Aalto's 1 Paimio have in common with a Doberman Pinscher, Le Corbusier s LC4 with a Spanish Greyhound, or Philippe Starck's Costes Chair with a Fox Terrier? Not a lot, you may think. But look again and you might notice shared traits in form, colour, personality, stature and style.
Author and illustrator Cristina Amodeo draws parallels between nearly twenty-five dogs and designer chairs in this fun and stylish book that matches iconic chairs with their corresponding breed of dog.
Who knows if Arne Jacobsen had a Welsh Corgi in mind when he designed his Grand Prix Chair? Or whether a Scottish Deerhound ever entered Ron Arad's head while designing his Victoria and Albert Sofa? Who cares, when dogs and chairs make such elegant designer pairs.
