The iconic Isokon Penguin Donkey, a 1930s free-standing bookshelf developed with the publisher, has been updated for the third time in its history by Shin and Tomoko Azumi. The original product was designed by Viennese architect Egon Riss in 1939, and reworked in 1963 by Ernest Race. Earlier this year, Chris McCourt, owner of Windmill Furniture, which produces Isokon furniture under licence, approached the Azumis to redesign the Donkey. The duo was briefed to design the piece in wood, but exact materials and colour were not stipulated, McCourt says. Donkey 3 is unveiled at 100% Design later this month.
