On September 5, 2019 Abramson Architects joined a select few of Los Angeles’ top architecture and design firms in displaying their one-of-a-kind cat condos at Herman Miller LA Showroom. After the event, the dozen luxury modern cat houses were put up for auction along with hand-painted cat bowls from feline-loving celebrities such as William Shatner, Kristen Bell, and Clint Eastwood.
This unique event benefits the LA-based non-profit, FixNation, which provides free spay/neuter services for homeless cats (stray, abandoned and feral felines).
For their third year in the charitable event, the team created a piece entitled, “CatCube: A Meow-dular Dwelling”. The flexible system uses magnets to link the parts together, allowing pet owners to configure the number and type of units that best suit their cat’s needs. The single modular design was split into two cat houses for the purpose of the auction and has been featured in the following international architectural publications.
