养过猫的朋友大多会发现一个奇怪的现象,那就是猫对纸箱有着特殊的兴趣,如果在纸箱上开几个洞,猫就会躲进里面透过洞口暗中观察,当遇到感兴趣的东西靠近便从洞口伸出爪子突然袭击,然后再迅速收回去酝酿下一次偷袭,这样的游戏对于猫来说总是乐此不疲。

For those who have raised cats will always find a strange phenomenon, that is, cats seem to be extremely interested in cardboard boxes. If there are some holes on a cardboard box, cats will hide inside and observe through the holes. When they encounter something that they are curious about, they will quickly attack it by their claw from the holes, and then take it back to prepare for the next sneak attack. Such a game is always enjoyable for cats.

猫立方的设计由此而来,希望利用廉价的常规材料对日常事物加以改造。设计上将瓦楞纸板层层叠加以体现板材的秩序感同时可以充当猫抓板功能,形体上采用简单的立方体,便于在室内随处摆放甚至可以当做临时茶几来使用。各个立面采用内凹的开洞方式,类似取景器做法,使纸箱外的人获得由外向内的观看趋势,不同位置和形状的开洞为人与猫之间的互动创造的更多形式。

The designing of Cat Cube comes from the above idea, utilizing inexpensive and accessible materials to transform daily things. To build it, having layers of corrugated boards stacked together to reflect the sense of order of the boards, and act as a cat scratch board. A simple cube shape design is adopted, which is easy to place anywhere indoor, and it can even be used as a temporary coffee table. Each facade uses the concave opening method, similar to a viewfinder, so people can get a better view of the inside from the outside. The holes in different positions and shapes create more forms of interaction between human beings and cats.

于人而言,猫立方是一层遮罩,区别于常规人与猫的相处模式,它的存在让人产生了距离感,同时也使得藏在其中的猫无法完整呈现,透过凹洞看到的或是四只爪子或是眼睛鼻子,这些碎片化的观看印象让人对猫产生新的体验和认知。

For people, Cat Cube is a barrier, this is different from the normal way of getting along with cats. It makes people feel a sense of distance, and at the same time, it makes the hidden cat unable to present itself completely. Viewing the cats through the concave holes, you may only see their claws, eyes, or nose. These fragmented viewing impressions make people have a new experience and perceptions of cats.

于猫而言,猫立方是一个升级版的瓦楞纸箱,它符合猫的狩猎天性,内部的空腔提供幽暗与遮蔽,不同形式的开洞让猫决定着采用什么样的姿势向外部偷袭。

For cats, Cat Cube is an upgraded version of cardboard box, which aligns with cat’s hunting nature. The inner cavity provides the darkness and shelter, and different forms of holes let the cat decide what kind of posture to attack a target outside of the box.
