These are adorable!
Japanese designer Masakazu Hori was kind enough to send over pictures of some of his work he recently showed at Milan Design Week. I think my favorite is “waiting,” a stainless steel fruit (or veggie) stand. They are so cute and remind me of those obedient doggies patiently waiting outside a store for their owner to come back.
After receiving a degree in Industrial Design in 2004, Hori spent four years working as an in-house designer for a leading pet products company in Japan. He established his own office in 2008 and is currently based in Dublin, Ireland. He is an avid pet lover and the influence obviously shows through in his work.
