created especially for furry felines, chinese studio: LYCS architecture have designed a new ‘CATable 2.0′ for the design conscious cat lover. presented as a series of four wooden cubes, each display different holes that have been carved out of its form. encouraging cats to freely explore, lie and meander through, the cubes are designed to be stacked or placed in whatever way the owner chooses, making the design adaptable as stools, a side table and even a book shelf.

update: the ‘CATable’ is presented at the 2015 gwangju design biennale as part of the ‘asian design hub’ exhibition that offers a look at how the world economy is shifting from west to east by highlighting objects that interpret and express the cultural traditions and design values of these three countries in a contemporary context. the show transmits the notion that design is something universal and easily understandable, and that people can feel empathy with the fact that good products can make our lives brighter as a result of combining long-established techniques with modern aesthetics and approaches.
