A Cat Thing Room Collection

The idea for this collection of cardboard cat furniture came about when two Taipei-based architects adopted two orphaned kittens.

The kittens, named Chacha and Lily, struggled to adapt to their new surroundings. A friend of the couple suggested they give the cats a cardboard box to play with, and after noticing an almost instant positive change, the idea for the Room Collection was born.

A Cat Thing provides a happy hiding spot for your cats, without sacrificing your home to bits of old cardboard boxes lying around. With a love of practical and minimalist design, the designers have created four modular components, namely a room, living room, balcony and ramp, that you can construct into the ultimate cat house.

No matter how you decide to assemble them, the resulted structure will keep the same sense of design and harmony,” says the duo.

Each non-toxic, eco-friendly module, made with origami principles in mind, can exist separately from each other.
