If you’re a cat owner, or if you have ever been into a home where one of the occupants is a cat, you will be aware of just how much hair cats shed, this will be even more noticeable if you are in fact allergic or have respiratory issues. This is the issue that Hyojeong Lee identified, and the solution came in the form of Rub Rub Rub.
With a design that has been inspired by the natural action of a leaf bursting out from the stem, this beautiful looking product combines the humble cat tower and the vacuum; a series of combs protrude from the central pillar which the cat can rub along, the homeowner then presses the button, positioned on a playful cat toy, that activates the vacuum and the loose fur is collected in the base.
Individuality can be expressed through the colored mats and this combined with the stunning design and practical functionality, makes for a very desirable product!

Forget those ugly carpet-covered cat towers! Give your furry friend a place to perch up and keep an eye on things with the Spaceship Gamma Clear Cat Perch. Feline tested and approved, the easy-to-mount design provides an elevated sanctuary for your cat to nap and hang out. A see-through dome provides your pet with panoramic views of your room while well-placed vents keep the inside fresh. Crafted from a combination of transparent acrylic and wood in light and dark finishes, it’s also designed to accent your interior.
For animal lovers, their pet can be their world and their pet’s comfort is quite often a top priority for them. One of the most stressful activities for animals is travelling due to the discomfort that is causes and the separation from their owner. The Aroma Pet Carrier aims to create a calmer environment through the introduction of clean, fresh air.
A ventilation system allows purified, fresh air to be introduced into the carrier, instantly creating a more pleasant environment. This clean air is then infused with the fresh and calming scent that is peppermint; this aroma reduces the nauseating feeling that comes with motion sickness, something that pets are prone to getting. A second aroma also flows into the cabin, the scent of soil; this natural fragrance relaxes the animal and reduces tension.
All of this is contained within a modern and rather elegant design, ensuring that the pet travels in true style!

If you’ve ever had to endure the undesirable task of washing a dog, you will be familiar with the inevitable struggle that occurs each time. However, for some individuals it also brings with it significant levels of physical discomfort and pain that is caused by bending down for prolonged periods of time. This is the exact issue that designer, Seung Hyo Lee, identified, and the solution came in the form of Bath Cradle.
Bath Cradle essentially creates a bathtub, within a bathtub; the dog-specific bathtub is elevated slightly to reduce the distance that the user has to reach down, while also providing a comfortable place for the dog to sit.
The design also includes a second feature, a seat just for the user! Just like the doggy-bathtub, it too spans the width of the bath and rests on the top. It provides a comfortable place for the user to sit as it takes the strain off their legs.

Better yet, it can fold flat so you can store it away or pack it when you need! DO want!
