The cat and I : Furniture for both cat and man (English)
Abstract [en]

This is an investigative work about the relationship between cat and human in the home environment, interpreted through three objects. My work stems from the hypothesis that one can design furniture that increase wellbeing, whilst both being functional for cat and man. This will in turn strengthen the bond between cat and man.My research includes four parts. First being a collection of knowledge trough literature regarding the history of the cat, to better understand its needs and relation to man. Thereafter I show my market research regarding cat furnishing, to see what has been done and how others have designed with a similar question formulation as I.After that I have tried to asses how cats use furniture. I have based my research on how my cats use furniture and complemented with other cat owners’ views and thoughts to create an image of cats in general and their behaviour. My research is followed by a recital of my design process regarding the three objects. I report how I have designed each object to function for both cat and man.The result is one chair, a lamp and a table that all can be used by both cat and man separately, but most importantly together. I therefore answer the question that it is possible to design furniture that work for both cat and man, but whether my three objects are the answer may vary between people.
