about this item

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 Amodeo’s, and some imagination to see in the chair’s Y-shaped back the dog’s flared ears and long nose, and maybe even 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 Starck’s Pratfall chair finds its match in the fox terrier, while the Billy sees itself in an Eames creation. Amodeo’s 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.
