We love extraordinary, surprising and versatile cat furniture design and are keen to show you innovative makers from around the world who make this happen.
Just like Hong Kong-based design studio Ryte who have launched their modular cat furniture system CATSSUP on Kickstarter this month. With high attention to detail, Ryte have designed a new system of modular cat perches and shelves, that cat owners can attach to their existing furniture. The idea is pretty attractive especially for those living in small urban flats.
The CATSSUP range includes jumping and lounging platforms as well as a scratching post and a toy ball. We especially like that all elements can be attached to any shelves, sideboards or tables. Thus transforming your living space into an aerial playground for your cats. The CATSSUP elements can simply be reconfigured when you want to keep your cats’ vertical playground exciting and new.
Why cats like vertical space
Cats, especially shy and less social characters, like to escape to vertical territories to feel more comfortable and secure. Any space elevated off the ground provides cats with vantage points from which they can safely survey their home below. This additional safe-space can help reduce competition for sleeping spaces, bullying for territory and therefore reduce stress. Especially in households with multiple pets.
The idea for CATSSUP is interesting as it utilises existing space rather than adding new bulky elements to your home. The look & feel of the range is minimal reaching into a slightly industrial look with the choice in powder-coated finishes and colour varieties of the scratch-able felt cover fabrics.
It leaves the imagination to the owner on how to configure their versatile cat furniture playgrounds. So, if you consider yourself an early-adopter, head over to the ongoing Kickstarter campaign to grab one of the remaining early bird offers.
