Jamboree Dog Bed

Design for disassembly.

The Jamboree Dog Bed is a great demonstration of the main principle of the redesign studio – the consideration of an individual product as an assemblage of functional modular components with multiple life spans.

The goal was to design something that collected dog hair, rather than have it go all over the carpet or floor. The hair sticks to the thong and can then be easily disposed of.

Thongs are modular and easily deconstructed, and the bed is modular and easily reconstructed from the thongs. The bed can be taken apart again if it is no longer viable in that form, and the materials re-used or redistributed.
