Project by: James
Location: Lower East Side — New York, New York
My wife and I designed and fabricated a cat duplex for our small NYC apartment. The cat furniture/architecture is comprised of modules that we call the Cat Pole, Cat Bridge, Catwalk and Cat Staircase. Mostly unfinished, natural materials were used throughout for the health of the cats and to fit with the simple look of the rest of the apartment, to which the cat furniture was to appear built-in. The fabrication relied almost entirely on mechanical fasteners and these became the embellishments, namely, the neatly cut countersink holes and pocket holes in the wood and the lines of stitching in the fabric.
