DOGS is the logical further development of the search for more flexibility and new forms of housing and living. Disposable industry, gentrification and production madness are our daily companions, architecture and urban planning offer new solutions to deal with these problem areas, but what happens when we use our direct co-inhabitants, the inventory, as an instrument of change. What happens when we throw away less and re-evaluate the furniture we already own, even build lifelong bonds with them. The furniture dogs Dogs were developed as mediators of this desired lifelong bond, the dog as an emotional link between furniture and owner. Put your washing machine on it, fry an egg in the living room or roll your bed into the hallway! Because dogs make life more worth living and more varied.
