The CATable Wooden Desk Doubles As Cat Playground

April 24, 2014


This is the CATable, a collaboration between designer Ruan Hao and Lycs Architecture. It functions as a desk for humans AND a playground for cats. That's cool, right? You know, sometimes I wish I was cat-size so I could play under my sofa. Plus jump really high. I've always wanted to take a nap on top of the refrigerator.

People who live with cats always has those kind of experiences?

1. Putting away the cat from your lap top was like a sentimental ritual of temporary farewell.

2. A proper sized hole could be so irresistible to cats. Their curiosity would be greatly satisfied through repetitively exploring the unknown path behind the hole.

The design of CATable was a fusion of those experiences, as well a locus where the interaction occurs.It is a table for us, and a paradise for cats.

I mean, it's awesome, but it also looks expensive. I'm wondering if maybe a couple balls of crumpled wrapping paper might not be the more economical choice here for cat play-things. Meow? I told you -- daddy can barely afford toilet paper, you're not getting the cat desk!

Keep going for several shots of a kitty exploring the thing.





Thanks to lilco, who informed me you can make your own CATable by adding an empty cardboard box to an existing table.
