It can feel impossible to find towers for your pet cat that fits with the rest of your living room furniture. Carpeted perches end up frayed or scratched and soon enough each one dons a top coat of fur– it can be an eyesore as part of an otherwise polished interior. To design a sophisticated cat tower that could fit into most living rooms, Jiyoun Kim Studio created Three Poles, a modular piece of cat furniture that fuses the feel of hardwood craftsmanship with sophisticated and minimalist interior design elements.
Designed so that cats and humans could co-inhabit the same living spaces, Jiyoung Kim Studio aimed to create Three Poles with durable building materials and sleek color schemes. Constructed from round birch plywood and three metal poles, each scaffold of Three Poles is removable and can be configured between the three poles to create perches for your cat to either rest or play.
In tribute to the classic cat tower, which was entirely coated in beige carpeting, Three Poles incorporate plush carpeting on three scaffolds, its base, and scratching post. Then, the additional scaffolds are constructed from birch plywood, supported by three metal poles that are painted the same brown hue as the plywood. One of the scaffolds constitutes a cat bed that can be removed and put on the floor to function as a traditional cat bed for naps after play.
Jiyoun Kim Studio created Three Poles for those who live with cats to have a cat tower that blends in seamlessly with the rest of their interior furniture. Ditching plastic material for plywood and a quirky design for a more stripped-down look, Three Poles works as an endless source of playtime for your pet cat without compromising the refined look of your living space.
