Award for high quality design: Betacryl Tunnel is sealed Red Dot

The Red Dot jury made its decision. After all the products presented were individually tested and assessed during an evaluation process that lasted a few days, the TUNNEL Betacryl product designed by the architect Pierangelo Brandolisio and manufactured by Brandodesign received the Red Dot distinction. The group of experts assigns the internationally recognized quality seal only to high-quality design products.

Betacryl tunnel

A kennel for cats made with betacryl material, a model with essential lines, for lovers of minimal. Inside is a reinforced microfiber cushion or embroidered leather. The slots obtained with laser cutting are designed to give the cat the opportunity to observe the space around without being seen. The feline instinct is enhanced by the Knight support, made of stainless steel, inspired by the legs of the bird of the same name, which make the object slightly mobile and give the animal the sensation of having climbed on a tree.
