SGRÄFO combines window curtains with a cat scratching spot, thus linking pet’s need to humans’ necessities. The main element of the structure making up SGRÄFO consists of solid panel curtains made of sisal fabric, a natural fiber very resistant to scratches, totally biodegradable, stainless, and waterproof. These curtains are supposed to be scratched plenty of times without being ruined. A second important element is a comfortable hammock positioned above the curtains on the extensions of the lateral supports of the track. Here the cat can lie down while monitoring the surroundings. The hammock is removable in order to be easily cleaned or changed if necessary.
The materials used are recovery steel and aluminum for the whole structure, sisal fabric for the curtains and there are two options available for the hammock: the winter version made of checked pile and the summer version made of green cotton. In this way, the human will admire his cat climbing and scratching his curtains without ruining them, sharing a piece of furniture as good housemates do.
