nendo has designed a three-piece dog accessory collection called ‘heads or tails’ for the japanese lifestyle magazine pen. the series of puppy products consists of a geometric bed, dishes and toys, all which have multiple applications and functions. the artificial leather bed — a construction of triangular panels connected in polygon mesh — becomes a small domed hut when the dog burrows inside, and transforms into a cushion when they lie on top. the ceramic dishes are reversible, with a shallow side for food and a deeper bowl for water when inverted. the silicon rubber toy ‘bone’ can be reshaped into a ball by tucking in its two ends. the set of items comes in two color variations – white and black – to harmonize with all home interiors.
