BowWow Haus, London UK
2018 – exhibition – charity project
for Blue Cross
Program: dog house
Floor Area: 1 m2
We are proud to announce our participation in the Bow Wow Haus London. A Blue Cross for Pets initiative.
The Blue Cross together with the Florida-based Outdoor Arts Foundation has invited architects, designers and artists to design and build ‘one-off, unique’ kennels for the BowWow Haus London event.
Bespoke designs were displayed at leading venues around London, including the iconic St Pancras Station, in early 2018. Following a chance to bid online beforehand, the kennels have been sold at a charity gala auction, with a portion of the proceeds going to support the refurbishment of our Blue Cross Hertfordshire rehoming centre.
PiM.dog is an elegant and playful object, it is at the same time a house and an interactive toy.
The shape of PiM.dog Bow Wow Haus can be rotated in different positions to suit the dog’s size, or just for fun!
It is composed of nine plywood panels cut via CNC machine, each panel is different in size with carefully crafted joints at each edge.
The patterns inside and outside the kennel originate from the sound wave of a barking dog and are then elaborated into a graphic pattern by developing a 3D script.
PiM.dog can be personalized recording the sound of your own dog and then generating a custom pattern which will be different every time.
