Are you an animal lover with an eye for interior design?
Well, look no further. Introducing Modpod, a modular design that offers a way for humans and cats to cohabitate while allowing everyone living in a shoebox to big spaces to maintain a stylish décor in their homes, bridging the gap between chic “human furniture” and pieces that look out of place to accommodate pets’ needs. It is furniture designed for both human and cats in mind, it can function as a coffee table, bed, or bookshelf and also functions as a hideout and a nest for animals.
Modpod launched their Kickstarter campaign on 21 July, 2020 and currently have a little less than 2 months for their campaign. They need outreach to more superbackers or people in general so they can reach 63,000 SGD.
The founder wanted to create something that she herself could use for her own animals. Being a pet owner, she knew the struggles of having damaged furniture from the clawing, so she wanted to create something that was not only stylish but also functional for the household. Each Modpod system has been put through testing by her animals who truly approved of the product. Even before they started Modpod, she started her first business in e-commerce pet food delivery and grew her operation into one of Singapore’s all-natural pet supply distributors. From there, with her experience in the pet industry, she decided to make furniture and started a team with an industrial designer and an investor and proceeded to make Modpods.
The features of Modpod include: universal modular design, which is configurable for people to create an innovate and all-inclusive home for families with their loved animals; strength and durability, where each cube can hold up to 120 kg, they can even become a bed frame for the entire family to enjoy; ability to transform living space, as modpod enhances people’s homes they are also helping stray animals with shelters all around the world; claw-resistant, it has been tested by the ones who will be using it to make it scratch proof and water resistant. Also, whether you live in a small apartment or on large acres of land, the Modpods can be modified to be stackable and mountable to be part of your home décor. It is also easy assembly with no tools required and comes with wall mounts for fixing onto walls.

They will also be able to receive regular updates on the process of getting their Modpod and even unlock stretch goals. Once they reach the completion of their Kickstarter, they will then begin the process of shipping the Modpods.
