ANIMAL MAGNETISM

Inspiration can sometimes strike in unexpected places. The Bad Marlon team was staring into the fridge when inspiration for their dog kennel designs struck. Well, at the fridge, rather. The refrigerator door seal gave them the idea to join the separate pieces of their kennels together with super strong magnets. “We started with plastic joint parts, but they were too big and ugly,” said the Bad Marlon team. “After we saw the first sample house with magnets, we went out to celebrate with beers!”

The South Korean company is made up of a trio of designers—Yong-sik Kim, Min-kyung Lee and Hye-jeong Chun—and a stuffed French bulldog toy named Marlon, which was bought at brand’s inception to help with the design process. Bad Marlon’s pet beds, kennels and pens are inspired by modern architecture, constructed from black eco board, naturally coloured plywood and white powder coated steel. And, of course, magnets, allowing for easy assembly and the ability to flat-pack for international shipping.

ISSUE EIGHT — OUT NOW

In this issue we challenge stereotypes, big and small. Klaus Dyba’s portraits of hairless dogs embrace the bald and the beautiful, Winnie Au’s fashion-inspired photos take the shame out of the cone, and the stellar lineup in Really Good Dog Photography stir us well away from the obvious fluff. We marvel at artists who can breath life into hounds on paper, screen and space. We travel to the heart of Australia, where dogs can easily become a hungry croc’s lunch. We fall in love with the ultimate four-legged bad-asses (we are looking at you, Brian Griffin) and we hang with farm dogs and their hip humans in the rolling hills of the Hudson Valley. All this, and more, inside the covers.
