We can spend exorbitant amounts of money on furniture and toys for our pets, but when it comes down to it, they tend to prefer cardboard boxes and baskets full of our dirty laundry. That’s what makes this flat pack dog hammock so brilliant. Just pop out the pieces, snap them together and wrap the whole thing in a t-shirt or sweater.
‘Wanmock’ was designed by Torafu Architects as part of the Architecture for Dogs project, a collection of dog furnishings created by some of the world’s top designers and architects. Each individual item was designed for a specific breed of dog.
In this case, Torafu architects examined what is most comforting to a Jack Russell Terrier – the smell of its owner – to come up with their idea. The hammock is the ideal height for the dog’s owner to reach over and interact with his or her pet from a chair or stool.
The title, ‘wanmock,’ combines the word hammock with the word ‘wan,’ which is the Japanese onomatopoeic word for the bark of a dog.
