JVA designed a dog house for the internationally renowned design
magazine Wallpaper. The "Bone House" was built to be a part of
Wallpapers "Hand Made" exhibition at the Palazzo Brioni at the 2012
furniture fair in Milan. Playing with canine associations, the dog
house is inspired by vernacular Norwegian log building techniques.
The project, however, is the result of modern manufacturing, with
environmentally friendly Kebony wood as main material and
CNC-milled forms. Bone House is designed as a flat pack solution
that can be easily transported and assembled. The roof consists of
clear polycarbonate that provides protection against the weather,
but at the same time it is a lightweight and transparent material
that highlights the "dog bones" which the house is built of, and
gives the dog light.
