For the owner—and the cat—who has everything is this architectural cat tree that looks more like a sculpture than a piece of pet furniture. And although fancy objets for felines (and their canine counterparts) are nothing new, there’s something about this one that feels purticularly special.

Designed by Tokyo-based “cat lifestyle brand” Rinn in collaboration with product designer Yoh Komiyama, Neko Modern Cat Tree, as it’s called, features a column-like construction anchored by a marble base (sourced from Greece), which also helps the cat regulate its body temperature.

A series of natural-wood dowels spaced evenly apart encloses three circular levels—each of which includes a felted section—forming a protective screen for the animal while also allowing the creature to be glimpsed. The top of the column appears sliced on a bias, adding to the architectural sensibility of the tree.

One of the sides even opens up like a door, while the pole that holds up the structure acts as a scratching posts as well. Practical yet design-minded, Neko is available for purchase for 1 million Japanese yen, or approximately $8,800.
