Hangzhou 2016 – Working with a cat around the house could be quite distracting as the pet would easily demand for attention just by sitting on the lap, playing with stationery, exploring our bags or just keeping on passing in front of the computer. LYCS architecture expands feline-friendly furniture collection with a purring-free playground that teases all cats expecting physical closure whenever they feel like having us around… No matter what we want.
CATable balances the relationship between a human at work and a cat at play. Under the desk’s surface, a smooth hand-carved and irresistible playground invites the cat to enter, explore and find shelter next to its owner. The holes and tunnels keep the pet busy allowing the human to work peacefully but also play together.
“People who live with a cat always have those kind of experiences. Putting away the cat from your lap top is like a sentimental ritual of temporary farewell. But proper sized hole could become irresistible. Cats’ curiosity will be greatly satisfied by repetitively exploring the unknown path behind the hole” says RUAN Hao to ArchiPanic.
The collection is completed with a brand-new set of storage furniture made according to the same concept of the CATable.
