Neue Galerie presents a new brand, Neue Hund, a line of chic canine couture and luxe accessories inspired by the museum?s mascot, a chocolate miniature Schnauzer named Milly von Barksky (the model). The line was conceived by museum director Renée Price, who travels the world to assemble the finest accessories for dogs and their owners, made by some of the most talented designers. Every item incorporates the principles of Vienna 1900 design: a refined aesthetic, exquisite materials, and superior craftsmanship. In other words, these are for the most distinguished and discerning of doggies.
The Hund Travel Carrier is made from hand-sewn chocolate brown calf-skin with comfortable hand-stitched leather handles, detachable woven shoulder strap, and nickel-plated brass hardware. Suitable for pets up to 20 lbs. Produced by R. Horn?s Wien.
Pillow Pillow Pillow is a line of comfy, cozy pillows and totes that feature a variety of playful pets, created by Aaron Stewart and Hornet Toys. After seeing his collection in New York, the designers at Australian jewelry company Polli teamed up with Aaron to produce a new collection of canine friends in the form of necklaces and earrings. Polli donates $1 from the sale of each piece to the World Wildlife Foundation. Scooter the Dachshund is pictured above.
BÄSTIS is a cute stand for food bowls designed by Monika Mulder for IKEA. The four paws raise the bowl so that bigger dogs don’t need to bend down too far to munch.
Kevy K introduced me to their products and I really like the Lamar and Gisele bowls. They are sleek, modern and simple yet also very organic. Hand carved out of onyx, travertine, black rock or marble, these bowl will run you a pretty penny but are truly a luxury for your pet. Since they’re individually made from natural materials, no two bowls are alike. I bet they weigh a ton!
I have to give a shoutout to Kyjen. This big box of dog stuff arrived on my doorstep and when I opened it up, something squeaked and Beans’ ears went like this: ^-^.
If you don’t know Kyjen, they’re the makers of the Outward Hound line along with a boatload of other dog toys and accessories. I was hesitant to get any toys because my dogs are aggressive chewers and can eat their way through just about anything. They also disembowel just about every stuffed toy they get and kill the squeakers within 5 minutes. Kyle from Kyjen assured me that I might be surprised at how my dogs interact with their toys. I was intrigued so I agreed to give ‘em a shot. What did I have to lose?
With the Lost & Find designed by Chet Rosales (Laorosa), the worry of losing your pet is put to ease with these integrated GPS dog collars. Put the collar on your dog the next time you take a walk in the woods or you’re at the park. If your dog wanders out of sight, simple open the app on your mobile device and track their location via Google Maps or built-in camera with an Augmented Reality viewer.
