Hostel Eden – 2017

The Katzenzimmer (Cat’s room) is a room in Hostel Eden, Leipzig, produced as a collaboration between David Ross, Felix Wissing (eigenform) and illustrators Elstertainment. David and Felix together designed, manufactured and installed furniture to suit the cat theme. Inspired by a cat’s climbing ability, curiosity and their view of the world on a different scale to our own, the large scale furniture requires the user to climb to reach their beds and uses a random tree-like structure to raise the different sleeping levels. Tree branches allow hanging of jackets and bags and the various different levels create a desk/bench space and storage space for backpacks.
