Modern Furniture Design for Cats and Dogs

The charming CATable was created by Ruan Hao from LYCS, an architecture firm based in Hangzhou and Hong Kong. Especially designed for cats to explore and sleep in, the project follows a worldwide trend: that of sharing your home with pets.
“According to the designer, people who live with cats experience these two things: 1. Putting away the cat from your laptop is like a sentimental ritual of temporary farewell. 2. A properly-sized hole is irresistible to cats; their curiosity is greatly satisfied through repetitively exploring the unknown path behind that hole. The design of CATable is a fusion of these experiences, as well as a creative place where the interaction occurs.” –  Read more from Freshome.

Modern Design for PetsKitten House, designed and built by architect Keith Palma of Cogitate Design – When I asked Keith if I could include his Kitten House in our post I also asked if he happened to have drawings for the house as well…he replied no, but he did create a quick 3D model to size all the pieces correctly. …Only an architect… 🙂
