Heads or Tails

In an impressive tribute to form and function, Japanese design and architecture firm Nendo adds extra beauty and creativity to their first collection of pet accessories.

Having lent his architectural talent to everyone from Starbucks to Issey Miyake and his product vision to the likes of Coca Cola and Haagen‑Dazs, Nendo designer (and dog-owner) Oki Sato has well and truly earned his stripes. There was little doubt that, when approached by Japanese lifestyle magazine Pen to design a dog house, the end result would be anything short of ingenious.

The three-piece Heads or Tails collection comprises the afore-mentioned dog house, a chew toy, and a food and water dish, all comprising clean lines and multifunctioning capabilities. Indented and formed with tessellated triangles, here a leather dog hut can be flattened to a comfortable cushion, a rubber bone becomes a ball and a ceramic deep water dish can be flipped into a shallow food bowl.

Available in black or white (but of course), these are the sort of pet accessories that will up the ante in any home.

ISSUE NINE — BUY NOW

In our Spring issue, there’s much to be in high spirits about. We go behind the scenes of Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs, a movie fuelled by dopamine, alpha dogs, and a vast crew of artisans and animators. We hang with a pack of trippy-looking poodles created by artist Susumu Kamijo. We find five mutts who changed history by injecting their human counterparts with a good dose of serotonin. There is plenty of oxytocin going around, too. We celebrate Sulek’s photography of rescued Spanish galgos, Jo Longshurst’s abstract twist on pet portraiture, and Ho Hai Tran’s love of stripes and spots. We travel to Berlin, Toronto, London, and upstate New York to meet creative types whose bonds with their four-legged mates are as heartfelt as they are intoxicating. We ask five foodies to fess up about dog snacks and guilty pleasures that feed body and soul, and we embrace illustrator Apolline Muet’s bear hugs between humans and animals.
All this, and more, inside the covers.
