We set out to make something special. The very first of its kind, the limited edition CATSA Lander Mark1 is a Refined Feline Escape Pod. Only 99 of the brushed aluminum Mark1 cat pods and 9 artist’s proofs will be produced with the debut colorway and material combination. The Mark1 was created and fabricated in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania by cat loving design nerds.

The CATSA Lander Mark1 is the product of over six months of persistent research, trial, and quite a lot of error.
CATSA collaborated with the Iontank design team to create a series of prototypes that evaluated proportions, materials, stability, and durability with the help of our rambunctious Catsanaut test pilots. Sadly, many Landers did not survive the rigorous process and several pilots were suspended after a large cache of catnip was found stowed aboard a particularly savaged prototype.

Collateral damage aside, we eventually succeeded in creating a truly stunning feline escape pod. We are also pleased to report that the Catsanauts love curling up in their fleet of Landers just as much as the cardboard boxes they come packaged in. As any cat aficionado knows, that is truly a win!

Even with the R&D behind us, the Landers are very labor intensive to fabricate given the amount of hand finishing involved in each and every one. 3D design packages, CNC machines, large format laser cutters, small format laser etching, industrial sewing machines, 3D printers, a customized arbor press, soldering irons and a great deal of hand routing and sanding all come into play. We took no shortcuts and made no compromises on the quality of the finished Mark1.

While there are plans for more lander iterations on the drawing board, the Mark1 series will remain unique. This material and color combination will not be repeated. The Mark1 is also particularly special to us because you never forget your first lunar love.
