One pricey poop box,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Modkat Litter Box Red (Misc.)
You might ask yourself what kind of person pays $180 for a litter box. The answer is the same person who pays over $100 for a simple-human garbage can, and that person is ME. Cat boxes are ugly. Plastic garbage cans are ugly. I'm a design snob with a tiny house so litter tracking is a serious problem. The box not only looks good, it works too. As my 3D design teacher always said, "IT HAS TO FUNCTION!" (He was right.) The top flips open easily, so I clean it more often. I don't need those stupid plastic liners because of the nifty re-usable snap-to liner. I still get a LITTLE tracking, but that's just because I have a punk cat who hops onto the top and then SHAKES her paws to get the litter bits off, scattering them about the room. My other, more decorous, cat steps out onto the platform in a civilized fashion, so the anti-track feature works with her. Plus, weirdly enough, I have received many a compliment on this box...and when was the last time someone said to you, "Hey, that's a beautiful litter box!"?

Your design teacher is sooo right. And soooo alone if the products making it to market are an indicator.
When I found that industrial design was an art degree, at least understood why so many products, like so many buildings, look nice but are incredibly poor at their function.
May you create and sell many, many functional and aesthetic designs!
