Nautilus / Pet bed


Discipline: Product

Discipline: Product

Nautilus is a pet bed and play cave in one. It is composed of felt sleeves which lie one upon the other. These sleeves can be opened and closed like a fan. Nautilus combines the basic elements of space and motion. When pets slip into the sleeves, they change curve and moving direction.
Because of its wooden handle Nautilus can also be used as a basket for little pets.
Instead of the holder the feltpanels can be combined with wooden buttons. Then Nautilus opens up like a shell.
Designed for... four-legged explorers, shyers, excursionists.
Favoured activity... taking cover, to ambush, sunbathing.
Material: Felt, Wood.
Dimensions (height x broadness): 25 x 41,7 cm.
