"As a volunteer with a cat rescue group in the past five years, I have spent every Sunday helping cat lovers adopt a cat."
"The cats and kittens at the adoption center love to lounge in their hammocks, which hang in their cages. Visitors have asked where they could buy such a hammock for their own cats. Alas, these hammocks can only hang in a cage!
I set out to design a sturdy cat hammock that would look good even in the living room. Other design goals: assemble in seconds without tools, quickly take it apart for storage and travel, ship it flat."
FAVORITE DESIGNER & FAVORITE DESIGN
For a favorite design and designer, I chose a Usonia home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The Usionia homes were built with "green" features long before green was used to designate environmentally friendly designs. The Usonia home has a passive solar design and concrete floors with radiant heat.
