Growlmama Loves #2
Our bi-monthly snapshot of things to do & things we love, doggy style
A private members club that loves your mutt
We've struggled to find a London Club that will admit our four-legged friend - until now. BLACK'S PRIVATE MEMBERS CLUB located in a gorgeous Georgian townhouse in the heart of Soho will welcome your mutts with open arms. More tricky however is access for Growlmamas - accoding to Black's website membership applications are welcome from anyone who is "extraordinarily interesting and interested." We're sure you'll find it a cinch!
The best in barkitechture
Are you a fan of Barkitechture? Then get your paws on the ARCHITECTURE FOR DOGS CATALOGUE - an in depth look at Kenya Hara's cutting-edge project which saw leading architects create a series of innovative structures to respond to the needs of particular breeds of dog. For example, ATELIER BOW-WOW's design (pictured) enables long-bodied, short-legged dogs to look their Growlmama in the eye or climb up on the sofa!
The book features photography by accalaimed photographer Hiroshi Yoda, the blue prints for each design and photos from three of the gallery exhibitions. Blue prints are also free to download from the Architecture for Dogs website so you can build these incredible structures yourself or simply watch the cutest doggy videos on repeat.
Minimal for park rumbles
Spring has sprung across the top half of the Globe and brought with it a spring in our step and fresh excuse to go shopping. High on our SS16 wishlist are a pair of pastel kicks by masters of sneaker minimalism, COMMON PROJECTS. While they don't come cheap, we're we're sure these puppies will make your daily doggy outings more than just a walk in the park.
Lovely lighting of the canine variety
Light up your mutt's life with these fabulous designs from London sign-makers GOODWIN & GOODWIN. Commission a bespoke piece like this doggy bone or rent something special for your pup's next party. Our design hound Frida has her eye on a giant "F" for her next soiree. So subtle Frida.
Heather Phillipson's new commission: MORE FLINCHING, at East London's Whitechapel Gallery "transposes her time as writer-in-residence at the Gallery into physical space, with a freely distributed multi-part poem". We're not entirely sure what his means but we do know there are some doggy references. Until 17 April 2016.
