nendo's cubic pet goods emphasize compatibility and functionality for the contemporary home




when surveying the pet products industry, nendo studio realized a majority are exceedingly round and vibrant and aren’t often well suited for minimalist interior spaces that include subdued shades or linear furniture. realizing this, nendo designed a fresh set of pet creations with a variety of different functions that underline compatibility in today’s contemporary rooms.

designed for japanese brand by | n, the dog house consists of two pieces that form a cube. the upper and lower parts connect together using a zipper which allow for different color variations to suit both the dog and owner. when detached, the ‘roof’ can be compressed down so it can use as a bed. this isn’t nendo’s first dog project – in 2013, the studio designed a three-piece dog accessory collection called ‘heads or tails’.


the by | n series also consists of a toy, food bowl and ball.

the roof can be scrunched into a bed for sleeping
