Cat Tree, Prototype, Version 1.G was created for "KONTEXT KUNST", an exhibition initiated by Neue Galerie am Landesmuseum Joanneum, Steierischer Herbst '93, Graz.

 

It is constructed according to the knock-down principle - the five elemenst slide into each other, and  are easy to assemble without any screws. Cat Tree is a sculpture, a functional object for cats, and can be used as a weired furniture object for the display of flowers, wardrobe, and more. Its height  is 160 cm - the length of Regina Maria Möller and the first shelf is the stretched height of Regina's cat "Dorian". The very first model of cat tree was produced for Dorian and later handed over to "Robin", Dan Graham's cat.
