The theme of the competition has been inspired by the book: “Pets. How pets have occupied our homes and hearts” by Guido Guerzoni. “Worshipped by millions of fans, courted by the multinationals of the sector and chased by the media, pet design protagonists have a thriving future ahead of them …. no one can be denied a beautiful piece of design, let alone our loved ones” from the book “Pets. How pets have occupied our homes and hearts” by G. Guerzoni
The competition is included in the events of VareseDesignWeek 2018 with the theme: “COLORFUL DESIGN” and is promoted by the Cultural Association Wareseable that is the organiser.
“Then the passion became global, creating a sector which, appeasing the humanization of our life companions, has invented every aspect of their life and comfort: sport equipment, strollers and trolleys, booster seats and rocking chairs, games, doors, bookcases and bedtables, indoor kennels and outdoor houses, beds and couches, armchairs and carpets, sunshades and umbrellas, bowls and cutlery, containers and dispensers, boxes and enclosures, bathtubs and beds, combs and brushes, toothbrushes, professional scratchers, as well as harsher constraint tools, such as straps, leashes, collars and muzzles. A pet scale world, designed down to the smallest detail, which has found its bards, eager to fulfil every desire, because there are few things pets can’t do like us” from the book “Pets. How pets have occupied our homes and hearts” by G. Guerzoni
The purpose of the competition is to ideate new typologies of objects for the indoor and outdoor life of dogs and cats: we ask to propose design objects which are the result of in-depth studies and reasoning referred also to new human lifestyles which therefore involve pets as well.  Quoting Guido Guerzoni: “ … because we spend more and more time together: with our pets we sleep, we go for walks in the morning, afternoon and evening, we go to work, we share couches, lunches and dinners, we go to bars, to restaurants, to friends, on trips, on holiday..”. No limit to materials and colours, provided that the project hypothesises a daily use object, which the pet can really experience, and which is realized respecting both the environment and the four-legged pet. It is important that the object is a product which may be prototyped and produced in series.
