An ICFF Preview: Ilios’ Katkat Shelving System by Mehtap Obuz

As a somewhat new roommate to two, one-year old boy cats who have transformed my apartment into a playground that requires heavy-childproofing, I adore the title given to Mehtap Obuz’s shelving system: Katkat. A stacking idea or one that can be used as a single stool, the color variations are as plentiful as its purpose and height.

The Katkat comes in Oak, Walnut and African Padouk and is left a natural color for a nice warm finish. Although stacking size varies greatly based on the individual project, the size of one unit is 40 cm x 30 cm x 55 cm.

Combine deep red shades with natural finished stools and stack in either direction. The vertical shelves fit together with a wide base, showing off their ultra modular, simplified look that won’t be easily shoved around in the furniture ring (or with a team of playing cats).
