Cats are self-sufficient animals and make excellent city pets. While their smelly litter boxes aren’t our favorite household item, The Cube, a cat bed designed by Aude Sanchez and Guillaume Gadenne of Meyou, will fit in beautifully with your modern home decor. But the fact that the bed is nice to look at isn’t even the best part. Sanchez, who has a background in marketing and communication, and Gadenne, who’s an industrial designer, have teamed up with an organization dedicated to rehabilitating the disabled through work for the bed’s manufacturing and stock management. The cotton beds will retail for $200 and will start shipping by March of 2016.
The organization is structured to employ persons with disabilities in the manufacturing of products and other services—a central part of the product life-cycle for The Cube. Through Meyou, about ten people with disabilities will be employed.
Meyou is currently raising money for their project via Kickstarter. You can visit their page to back their project, and to get a stylish bed for your cat while supporting this good cause!
