#Exhibitions

How you ever asked yourself what your relationship with your dog would be like if it involved serious architecture? The architectural studio Asif Khan presents a line of surfaces in sheep’s wool, somewhere between a table and a rug, and the warmth of a cozy little nook destined to become the highpoint of any home, thus placing the dog at the centre of attention - a playful refuge in which a black dog would literally disappear. This and plenty of other ideas are on hand at this unusual event at Japan House, the first gallery in Europe to host the exhibition Architecture for Dogs. Conceived and directed by Hara Kenya of the Nippon Design Center, in collaboration with the co-founder Julia Y.C. Huang of Imprint Lab, the exhibition - which involves the participation of top designers and architects - was first presented at Design Miami in 2012. It included 13 works. It has grown since then and received high praise on its tours through Japan, China and Brazil.
