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.
