What does Alvar Aalto’s 1 Paimio have in common with a Doberman Pinscher, Le Corbusier’s LC4 with a Spanish Greyhound, or Philippe Starck’s Costes Chair with a Fox Terrier?
Look again and you might notice shared traits in form, colour, personality, stature and style.
Author and illustrator Cristina Amodeo draws parallels between dogs and designer chairs in this fun and stylish book that matches iconic chairs with their corresponding breed of dog. Who knows if Arne Jacobsen had a Welsh Corgi in mind when he designed his Grand Prix Chair? Or whether a Scottish Deerhound ever entered Ron Arad’s head while designing his Victoria and Albert Sofa? Who cares, when dogs and chairs make such elegant designer pairs!
Cristina Amodeo is a graphic designer and illustrator based in Milan. She is co-author and illustrator of the children’s books Toujours avec moi and Matisse’s Garden.
