Why You'll Love This Book
What does Le Corbusier’s LC4 chair have in common with a with a Spanish Greyhound, Alvar Aalto’s 1 Paimio have in common with a Doberman Pinscher 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 stylishly funny 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! A must for dog lovers and design addicts alike - and if they love both you're on to a winner!
