Greetings fellow human!
Recycled and recyclable. This concept lies at the core of all designs by UK based Pets & Pods Studio.
We understand the importance of environmental challenges of modern times and have developed our products from recycled materials that eventually would become recycled into something else again. Design is influenced by simple geometric forms
found in nature such as flowers and crystals and suggests beauty in simplicity. All unnecessary decorative elements were stripped to the bare minimum allowing the structure to speak through subtle contrast between colour, texture and play of shadows.
Our first conceptual product "Pento" was initially created as a rebellion against a mass of generic products flooding the pet market. After numerous futile attempts to find suitable furniture for our first cat "Luka" we decided to take matter into our own hands and create something new. Currently all our creations are a consensus between design conscious humans and the "end user". So far we manage to negotiate this delicate balance by applying our skills in carpentry, post-industrial design and love for our four legged friends. We've expanded our collection with new designs to accommodate medium sized dogs as well as cats and constantly experimenting with new shapes and folding techniques.
For the main structure we use thick PET felt that is strong and durable yet soft to touch. Made from recycled plastic bottles it has superior acoustic properties and contains no chemical binders. It doesn't smell, hypoallergenic, easy to clean and if damaged products could be repaired instead of being thrown out. Secondary material is made of compressed waste from sawmills, wood pallets,etc. and has lowest levels of formaldehyde emissions for this type of wood product. Naturally looking colours are achieved by using organic dyes.
Careful selection of materials, good functional design and extensive research into behaviour of both cats and dogs, all this makes us stand out above the cut from our competitors. We constantly in search of new fresh ideas and will continue to develop best possible products for our customers.
