Not a simple kennel but a small house for our animal friends is the concept behind this unique and refined design object created by the designer and architect Alessandra Fagnani. A project that is linked to the origins of the Veronese designer born in 1976: on the one hand the name, El me cagneto, refers to the Venetian dialect, on the other some stylistic elements, such as lace, recall the local tradition of Burano. It was the love for his dog Biba the real engine that brought Alessandra Fagnani to the realization of this curious design object, presented for the first time during the "Disclosed" design competition, whose objective was the realization of a complement furnishing that emphasizes the introspection between inside and outside. At first glance it is undoubtedly the wooden structure that strikes the eye, made up of birch wood panels cut by laser in correspondence with the decorations and lacquered in which the tradition of lace blends with the new production technologies. The base, instead, is in okume 'marine black lacquered wood and equipped with a black velvet cushion ready to welcome and pamper our four-legged friends; finally, it rests on golden metal legs that give an elegant and fashionable touch to the whole structure. An element conceived and conceived as a real piece of furniture; the first "closed" kennel but pierced by interiors in which the animal can feel protected, but at the same time part of the surroundings. It is also a 100% Made in Italy product, which avails itself of the collaboration of strictly Italian craftsmen, at the forefront of the production system and with great experience in the design field. A design project capable of adapting and modeling both to our daily needs and to those of our hairy friends who are increasingly present in our lives and homes.
