Nils Holger Moorman launches dog-sized version of its flatpack bed

German furniture maker Nils Holger Moormann has released a flat-pack bed designed for the needs of man's best friend (+ slideshow).

The company launched the Kläffer as a pooch-proportioned version of its full-size Siebenschläfer and children's Spross beds, both flat-pack designs.

The dog bed comprises several metal-free pieces designed to be easily slotted together – a feature that also makes the beds portable.

In keeping with Nils Holger Moormann's commitment to local sourcing of materials, the Kläffer is constructed from European birch plywood.

Currently only available in one size, the bed comes in three varying colours – red, black or white. The company hopes to launch small, medium and large Kläffers in the future.

Summing up its design approach, Nils Holger Moorman explained that "the key thoughts are simplicity, intelligence and innovation, and these colour the entire company’s philosophy".

The company often works with flat timber sheet material in designs like the Bookinist bookshelf chair and the self-catering Berge lodge, built next to the Nils Holger Moormann headquarters.

The Kläffer dog bed is the latest product in a growing pool of high-end designs for pets. In March of this year, Japanese studio Nendo launched its minimalist collection of dog accessories, while MAD founder Ma Yansong recently debuted a series of steak-shaped rugs for dogs.
