Feline architectures: a fun and affordable picture-book of cats with their cat trees

Every cat owner knows the frustration of shelling out a considerable amount of money for a cat tree or scratching post only to find that their feline family member prefers to sleep in the box the item came in. Some lucky cat owners also know the unexpected delight that comes from seeing cats use the accessories made just for them, the strange satisfaction of catching their kitty relaxing on their kitty-sized furniture.

Against stylish pastel backdrops, Swiss photographer Pascale Weber poses her feline subjects on a variety of different cat-specific pieces, lounging on the roof of a fuzzy ice cream truck and balancing atop a three-pronged scratching post that resembles a cactus. Her photography series captures the undeniable charm of cats on their best behavior while also providing a tongue-in-check echo of more serious forms of design. The artfulness of each cat tree mirrors the contemporary aesthetic trends of human-sized architecture and sculpture: multifaceted, functional and ultimately representative of those who utilize such structures. Each cat presents their home just as proudly as a person might in this surprising combination of art and animal photography, perfect for cat lovers and art enthusiasts alike.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

Harriet Lloyd-Smith

Weber and her precise lens are proving that even the most practical of pet accessories can have aesthetic – and comic – value. If you weren’t already a cat person, we presume you are now.

Happy Holidays from Artbook | D.A.P.

Happy Holidays from Artbook | D.A.P.

We dare you not to smile while flipping through For Cats Only, Hatje Cantz’s infectious new collection of architectural cat photography (as in, cats in and on 30 different, idiosyncratic cat trees) by Zurich-based Pascale Weber. Featured here is the obvious favorite winter holiday shot, but others are just as cool—conjuring mini-Modernism, hippie-chic, desert islands, summertime fun, spelunking, high-rise living and more than a little bit of Dr. Seuss. “With her series of cat trees,” Nadine Barth writes, “Pascale Weber has created a new, fresh topos: the live-in sculpture for cats. Presenting these idiosyncratic objects together distills their essence, a kind of ‘aura of housing.’ One could now make grand statements about a society that creates a house within the house for the house pet. Or perhaps for oneself as a place of visual retreat where the eye can linger. One practical side effect is something all cat trees have in common: they are a genuine alternative to the sofa.” continue to blog
