Tom Wainwright : Animotecture

With original aesthetics and often endowed with great ingenuity, contemporary creations for dogs, cats and other faithful companions are compiled in the book Animotecture, Design for pets. An anthology that reminds that the design is not reserved for theHomo sapiens, and that it can very well be intended for Canis lupus familiaris, Melopsittacus undulatus ou Carassius auratus.

A design that has dog ... Compiled by the author Tom Wainwright and edited by Phaidon, this surprising collection of niches, perches and other baskets will fascinate lovers of animals with hair, feather, or scales. Over the 228 pages that account the book, it is a selection of more than a hundred objects that is proposed to the discovery, the improbable Chihuahua cloud directed by Jesse Reiser and Nanako Umemoto to the ingenious Tile birdhouse from Klaas Kuiken to the very poetic Cage Archibird signed Gregory of Laforrest. And our domestic companions are not the only ones concerned: chickens, horses and even Hermit crabs are all entitled to their shelter. What to become dingo!
