You can’t blame some dog lovers for spending a lot of money on food and stuff for their pets. So if you have that mindset that it’s okay to spend for pets, you’d love this Dome-Home from Foster + Partners.
The Dome-Home is not exactly expensive, but it looks like something that you would spend a lot of money on. The design is cutting-edge, something that we don’t usually expect from a dog kennel. But then again, when there is the topic of design, any object can be given a new iteration.
Designer: Foster + Partners
Foster + Partners has submitted an entry into the Barkitecture competition at a major pet event. The Dome-Home features a geometric form that creatives and design enthusiasts will love even if they don’t exactly love dogs. At the Goodwoof pet event held over the weekend, Norman Foster proudly showcased the plush kennel to dog owners. Foster described the product with a geodesic shell structure. He also noted, “it is like architecture in miniature,” and we can agree that it is a sight to behold.
Canine luxury seems to be a thing now, and there is no stopping pet owners from spoiling their babies. This time, Foster + Partners reimagines such pet luxury by introducing the handcrafted cherry wood dog kennel. Great design and craftsmanship always go together, and we love what we’ve seen from the designer and English furniture maker Benchmark.
The Dome-Home is made of engineered cherry wood and fine timber. A flexible padded fabric liner complements the bowl-shaped interior for your dog’s comfort. The liner is even removable for easy washing as described.
We can already imagine the Dome-Home in homes of minimalist pet lovers. The geodesic shell form isn’t exactly a simple design, but the wood material gives it a more natural and earthy feel. It’s modern contemporary that we believe can be timeless.
Over the weekend, the Goodwoof held at the Goodwood House was filled with numerous dogs of all breeds, sizes, and shapes. It’s a special event that celebrated man’s best friend. Several special activities for dogs and their humans were featured. In addition, lots of products were presented, including the Dome-Home.
We’re no stranger to kennel designs, as we’ve featured several here before. However, not all are exclusive for our paw-friends as kennels can both be for cats and dogs. That DIY Feline Digs was a cool cat crate, while that PaiPai Pets doubled as a cat tower and storage area. We once thought the Fetch House could be the best dog house for your best boy.
