What’s hidden in your drawers? What kind of books would you put up on your shelf? For the same piece of furniture, we might have a thousand answers out of a thousand people. Compare to the dazzling forms of the furniture, we have a lot more curiosity over these stories behind each one of them, because they are real, subtle and sometimes, dramatic.


Last year, we designed CATable 1.0 which provides us with a unique space to share with our kitties. This year, CATable 2.0 is no longer a proper-sized table. It consists of 4 pieces of cubic wooden module in exactly the same size. Each one has a particular path for cat to stroll, and the “remainder” space would be used up to the cat lover’s own need: you can use them directly as stools, or stacking them into tea table, short ark, or even book shelf. You are participating designing your own furniture and creating a unique wonderland for your cat.


Designer: RUAN Hao, LYCS Architecture
Design Team: RUAN Hao, LAI Zhenyu, Tong Chaochao, LIN Jingrui
Size: 40cm * 40cm * 40cm

你在抽屉里藏着什么秘密?你的书架中又放着什么书?即使是对于同样的家具,每一个人都会有不同的答案。比起华丽的外表,家具里头的故事更为真切,更为细腻,也更耐人寻味。他们承载着每一个使用者的生活经历和情感寄托。对于这些林林总总的故事和那些纷繁交织的空间,我们总想一探究竟。


猫桌1.0以猫的视角走入了桌子的内部,为人和猫带来了一个不曾存在的共享空间。今年,猫桌2.0不再是一张传统尺度的桌子,而是四个木质的立方体“小猫桌”。每一个都有着不同的形态与猫可以玩耍的路径,剩余的空间则可以由使用者自己来定义:放书、展示藏品,甚至是养鱼。使用者可以以“搭积木”的方式将这些单元组合成凳子、茶几、矮柜或是书架,创造出一系列只属于你的家具和一个独一无二的猫的乐园。
