About "Cats&Pods"

London, United Kingdom
We are a small workshop based in London, England, aimed at designing and producing high quality furniture mainly for cats. After several attempts to find a suitable habitat for our own cat, that would satisfy not only his enormous demands but ours too, we decided to make everything by ourselves and after a few months of experimenting with different materials and shapes we finally came up with the model that is both attractive and functional, thing that is very rare in modern design in general (discuss:). After a long period of testing on various "specimens" we've decided to make this product available to other like-minded people who are bored with standard mass-produced objects. Currently known as a "Crash Pad" it is available for sale at the trendy "Lik+Neon" shop in Shoreditch, London. And since they are very proud owners of several cats, you can see our pod in full action and admire the friendly vibe of the shop. Alternatively, you can order it directly from us. Apart from carefully crafting furniture for cats, we occupy ourselves in other activities, such as graphic art, painting, sculpture, installations, music e.t.c. So watch this space!

Kamakura house and Maru

As being huge fans of the "Maru the Cat" from Japan, we've spotted another uplifting video from his owners. Apart from usual cute antiques courtesy of the Maru, it features a well-designed cat house made in the best minimalist traditions of Japanese craftsmen, nothing more, nothing less. It appears to be made of corrugated cardboard but looks solid enough to withstand an attack from Maru.  And if you can read Japanese, here's their website.

Our only criticism would be the size of the pod, it could have been a wee bit bigger, which is clearly visible on the video...  But who we are to know what cat wants!

Spot the Cat

Here, at Cats & Pods research facility, we were inspired by our recent outing to the Tate Modern gallery and created a new visual identity for one of our pods.  Totally nocturnal polka-dot version in extremely limited edition.
As usual testing of the unit was conducted by our certified quality inspector Lucas who blended really well into the new colour scheme.  Seal of approval granted with subsequent after-work nap.  Good job Luka and Cats & Pods team!
