Cat owners know that kitties will curl up and nap just about anywhere, particularly if they can get in close the action or become the center of attention.

Japanese designers of Koichi Futatsumata + Partners of Case-Real tap into this seemingly universal feline impulse with a creative combination facilitating both cat naps and coffee klatsches.

A basic stainless-steel frame supports a rectangular glass top, but also suspends a woven cat hammock below so you and your pet can maintain contact through the glazed surface.
