2. Modern Cat Tree NEKO by Yoh Komiyama
Yoh Komiyama creates the Modern Cat Tree NEKO, an enticing structure that supports a loving bond between humans and cats. Oriented vertically, it provides cats with a private space to rest and play. Thanks to the nature of the structure, it works well as a decorative interior object in any setting.
The cat tree features glances between each cylinder post, which allows the presence of both a cat and a human. This, in turn, can help you and your furry friend have a deeper level of intimacy. The tree is stabilized by the low center of gravity provided by the Greek marble used for the base. Marble is also important for regulating cats’ body temperature more effectively.
In his work, Komiyama attempts to incorporate architectural modernism into the design of recreational cat furniture.
3. Igloo by Teixeira Design Studio
In small spaces, finding a place for a cat tree or bed can be challenging. A great solution to this is João Teixeira’s integrated design, ‘Igloo’, which provides a cat bed and a coffee table. Your furry friend can be warm and happy while your home remains modern and sophisticated.
The sphere shape of the bed itself was inspired by the typical cat sleeping patterns. According to the designer, he put aesthetics aside, making sure furry friends’ comfort came first.
