Dogs and Chairs


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? Not a lot, you may think. But look again and you might notice shared traits in form, colour, personality, stature and style. Author and illustrator Cristina Amodeo draws parallels between nearly twenty-five 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.

A fun activity book for children (and adults), the paper dolls in this book are designed to be cut out and dressed with costumes taken fro the V&A's extensive fashion collections. On the reverse of each lovingly illustrated dress is a line-drawing of it - which you can colour in to make the dress entirely your own.
