when thinking about the home, parisian designer aude sanchez remarked on the attention many people pay to the aesthetics of their belongings and beds, but not to the items that our animals inhabit, which inevitably form an integral part of the living space. she decided to form a collection of cat furniture for discerning felines and their owners, with both architectural and natural influences.

 

sanchez’ brand meyou — created in collaboration with industrial designer guillaume gadenne — has realized a line of three products, all made of natural materials, that bring together curved and straight lines, creating a cozy cocoon for cats. curious and playful by nature, the felines can use the habitats as a shelter, to hide, nap or even sharpen their claws. the cube, the bed and the ball are all currently seeking funding on kickstarter,

 

 

 

 

 

meyou is committed to making a difference by helping and promoting persons with disabilities. they have partnered with a parisian organization dedicated to rehabilitating persons with disabilities and will use their work in manufacturing, product assembly and stock management. through meyou, about ten persons with disabilities will be employed and will become more independent every day.
