Have you ever been filled with joy by the sight of a sleeping cat? The Neko Cup (literally “cat cup”) is the newest product from Japanese design brand h-concept. Constructed from biomass plastic (bamboo and scallop shells) the hollowed out figurine produces a silhouette of a sleeping cat.
It may be used on the beach, in the park’s sandbox and, in the winter months, with snow. And when it is not being used, it also works as an cute little sculpture. Designer Yuka Morii says she loves seeing kittens and cats sleeping on the sidewalk and she desired to preserve that warm feeling she gets when she spots one out of the corner of her eye.
Cute and practical, this is Japanese design at its very best and is surely one of the must-have items for the summer. Enjoy the Neko Cup in white, beige, or black colors. If you’re local to Japan, they are available to purchase through the h-concept online shop.
