mini furniture for cats in japanese makers campaign – Designboom

a campaign revealing mini furniture for cats is unveiled in japan amid a new generation of craftsmen’s hopes to build upon a once-prosperous industry. the 60-second clip shows the feline friends-come-guinea pigs getting comfy on genuine furniture scaled down to their size.

the campaign, produced by okawa city, hopes to promote the area in fukuoka, a hub for professional craftsmen specialising in traditional crafts such as woodworking, hardware, glass and cutlery. the prefecture, which is is home to 150 furniture-manufacturing factories, once boasted a large industry for wedding furniture specifically made from kiri, a light but strong japanese wood used for chests and boxes.

under the banner ‘craftsman MADE’, a succeeding generation hope their feline friends will help to PR okawa furniture (and with a strong history of viral hits on the internet, it seem likely they’ll be successful). the furniture will be exhibited at the city’s tourism and interior information centre, okawa terrazza.
