The Hong Kong-based designer Hao Ruan fabricated CATable out of a solid piece of wood and hand carved a series of tunnels that run beneath a flat and function workspace. “A proper sized hole could be so irresistible to cats,” the design team writes on their website. “Their curiosity would be greatly satisfied through repetitively exploring the unknown path behind the hole.”

CATable, which was exhibited at Milan University during Milan Design Week, is just one of the latest examples of beautiful pet-centric design that we’ve seen. Four angled table legs made of stained wood prop up the tabletop. The designers also elevated a portion of the desk to accommodate users who cross their legs while working.
