product design / manufacturing / BRAND
Launched in 2013, GIMLI is a collection of contemporary dog dens and accessories designed for the modern dog home. Using sustainably harvested north american hardwoods, vegetable-tanned leather and non-toxic natural finishes, GIMLI has earned accolades in notable design publications and clients in major cities around the globe.
I am the lead designer, and creative director responsible for all product design, manufacturing, and branding.
Embodying a classic style with sophisticated minimalism and natural materials, the Gimli Traveller is both a carrier and den.
An aluminum mesh facade is encased in sustainably-harvested North American hardwood, while solid brass and leather details make each handcrafted den a unique statement object, both at home or on the road.
The perfect hideaway for any dog, the original Gimli Den is a take on a classic form, and features an optional solid walnut locking door, making it ideal for puppy training. Crafted from solid, sustainably harvested walnut with solid brass detailing, our Gimli Dog Dens are made for your dog with your style in mind.
Named after Gimli, Manitoba. A small Canadian lakeside town an hour from Branch's hometown, Winnipeg.
(It is also the name of our resident Welsh Terrier who is part dog, part cat, part gremlin, part bear, part racoon, part deer, part human. She's a lot of things.)
