I was browsing through my accumulation of image files and found some spectacular pet design images that I had clipped from various web sites over the years, and I thought I'd share some with you. Maybe they'll give you some ideas to accommodate your own dog's, cat's, or other critter's need for a change!
This first design is really out of this world!
1. Planet Cox Colony Cat Home
Designers: Jay Lee & JOOM Studio
Smart-looking cat hang-outs come with the style you love and the entertainment your cat craves. These Planet Cox Colony Cat Homes would certainly be a conversation piece when you can have visitors to your home again!
In the meantime, your cat(s) will be enjoying them!
"To the moon, Tiger!"
Fabrica Bois, "wood-made," created this very clever and cozy origami-like spot for a small pet. Packed with bright cushions and plenty of character, the Nidin provides lots of space for your reading material and even a spot to place your drink!
The black bands you see on the sides of the Pet Shelter are what keeps this piece of furniture solidly together!
3. My Automatic Dog Petter Contraption
Design by Thompson Woodworks
Whether or not this re-invention of the wheel scratches your dog, My Automatic Dog Petter Contraption makes a superb piece of sculpture! What a conversation piece. A 'dog petter' machine....
But wait! the Automatic Dog Petter doesn't just pet your dog, it scratches and pets your dog... at the same time! (It has a preference for large dogs as you can see.)
You can find other incredible contraptions by Thompson Woodworks here.
4. Wooden Fishbone House For Animals
Design by Pote
This adorable bed for a kitty or small dog is more sturdy than it looks. The design is ingenious. There are no fasteners anywhere in this Fishbone House. Indeed, there is a very fish-like spine holding the rungs together. An amazing piece of work!
Look at the thickness of the wooden layers. The spaces between them allow for great air circulation! Genius!
The Fishbone House is available for sale on the Pote website here.
5. Natural Moss Pet Bed
Design by Estudio Maleza
Though photographed outdoors, I think the Natural Moss Pet Bed is intended for interior designs. You may have to spray the moss with water once in awhile to keep it fresh, but at least the neighboorhood dogs won't be lifting their legs on it.
This pet bed was exhibited at the "Plaza República Federativa del Brasil" in 2018, and there was even a cute dog demonstrating how comfy it is....
DArA Natural Moss Pet Bed via Estudio Maleza
The Natural Moss Pet Bed is one of several pieces by Estudio Maleza that emphasizes the need to bring nature indoors through design.
I hope these wonderful designs stimulate your own design ideas and that you can find or create something that speaks to your own design talents. In Part 2, I will share some designs for pet entertainment!
That's the buzz for today!
