Laia Fusté - cluc

When designing Cluc, a well considered collection of objects for cats and the people who love them, Barcelona-based product designer Laia Fusté set out to create products that would be as appealing to the owner as the animal.

As Fusté explains:
We live between animals (dogs, cats, birds...). We share our home with them. We sleep with them, play with them, travel with them, take care of them, teach them, learn from them... normally considering their company as an important part of our life. But that's not all we do, we also project our own image on them. We realise this fact because of the objects we design for them: human useful objects scaled for pets, without taking into account its morphology and psycology.

Cluc is an object collection designed for cats that not only consider their psychology, perception and morphology, but emphasize the act of sharing life with humans, becoming hibrid objects, objects for both.

This collection includes three objects: a nightstand-house, a feeder to share human leftovers and a toy. Each one of them has been studied with three different materials (wicker, ceramics and olive wood) and with three craftsmen from Alt Empordà (Catalonia): a basket maker, a potter and a wood turner respectively.
