With the spring just around the corner, nest boxes are likely to reappear fixed to walls, trees or buildings in many backyards and gardens. Now, thanks to a young Danish designer Kristina Kjær Hansen, you can also set up a birdhouse and admire it from the comfort of your own apartment. Yes, it might not attract as many birds as its outdoor equivalent but with its differently sized storage modules, ‘Birdstick’ provides enough space to store large as well as medium and small items within its ‘nesting modules’. Assembled without the use of glue or bolts, the solid oak design can be adjusted depending on individual needs of its user. The design was showcased earlier this month at the TEKO stand in the Greenhouse area at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2012.
More about ‘Birdstick’:
‘Birdstick is a small and flexible storage unit inspired by nesting boxes and trees. Birdstick consists of poles and three modules made of oak. The large nesting box is suitable for larger items such as books, photo frames or hair products. The medium-sized nesting box is closed and therefore suitable for items one might wish to hide, e.g. your phone charger or gloves. The small nesting box can e.g. contain perfume bottles or keys. In other words, there are countless ways to use Birdstick, and it can be used in any room.
‘The nesting boxes are turnable and can be placed freely on the pole, using distance pieces and dowels made from oak. This way you are free to create your own piece of furniture and change the furniture’s expression.’
