Meow Parlour – Modern Cafe For NYC’s Adoptable Cats

Sonya Lee Architect designed the Meow Parlour, which is a cat cafe in New York City, where people get to interact with cats, while they drink their coffee. The cat cafe allows the cats to roam freely, while they’re waiting to be adopted. The furniture was designed to make it easy for the cats to play, hide and explore. For example, you can see in the photo below, the table has been designed with supports that become a vertical maze for the cats to play inside of, as their visitors sip their coffees. There’s a wall of cubbies and shelves, which is home to beds and toys. The low hexagonal tables have a lasercut acrylic top, with kitty heads cut out for doors.

A giant moving clock which gives the impression that you are actually inside it, dozens of finely designed steampunk details, rotating wheels, metallic flowers opening up on the ceiling, a live moving bird and even a robot which definitely takes you back to Giger’s own characters, these are the core attractions of the Romanian pub. And it is indeed quite a wonder of design. The works took almost two years to come to life, but the efforts are well worthwhile, offering an unparalleled experience for having your regular cup of coffee at a bar.

The walls of the bar are organically shaped and colored like coffee sack made up of “Plywood” type of wood, whereby the pillars in between are coated with textile coffee sacks. Tables and hanging chandeliers represent the coffee grains lined up asymmetrically in order to generate the impression of being inside a coffee sack. The separating wall has a double function; decorative and functional. Its organic shape consists the most dominant part of the premise enabling a unique feeling of sitting unlike any other one comes across in everyday life. Each of the plywood element was designed individually. This because for the creation of an entire organic shape, each of the element needs to be designed separately.” Take a look!
