Yoh Komiyama uses Japanese hardwood to create minimalist climbing toy for cats






This multi-storey cat tree by Yoh Komiyama was inspired by the modernist architecture movement and features a series of wooden dowels anchored by a marble base.
The Neko Cat Tree was created by Japanese designer Yoh Komiyama for manufacturer Rinn and is designed to offer a private space for cats, while also acting as a decorative object for inside the home.

The three-tiered tree is comprised of multiple rods of Japanese hardwood, sourced from the country's Hida region.
Each of the rods are spaced out and positioned in a cylindrical form, ensuring light enters the interior space, and allowing a glimpse in and out of the tree.

"The spaces in between each cylindrical post provide glimpses, and thus convey the mutual presence, of both cat and human, maintaining a furtive connection between the two for a greater intimacy," said the company.
This structure is supported by a central pillar wrapped in hemp cord, which doubles up as a scratching post for the felines.

Inside, teardrop-shaped pieces of grey Kvadrat felt partially cover each of the three floors, offering the cats a comfortable sleeping surface, while holes cut out of each tier allow them to easily travel between each floor. One of the sides of the structure can also be opened up like a door, to provide easy access to the interior.

Inspired by the aesthetic of architectural modernism, Komiyama chose to use minimal materials ? opting for a warm-coloured wood that clashes with the cool white marble.
According to Rinn, this mixture of marble and natural wood expresses a "cultural fusion between the wooden materials of the East, and the stone materials of the West."

Rinn isn't the first company offering tasteful design for our feline and canine counterparts. New brand Dote has just launched a range of pet accessories made from recycled materials, while Nendo's range of Cubic pet accessories is designed to complement minimal interiors.

Last year, IKEA revealed its first furniture collection designed specifically for pets, which included a treehouse-like cat hideaway, and a bowl that encourages dogs to eat slowly.
