‘Dish of desire’ birdfeeder by Frederik Roijé (NL)

Detail of the five-course 'Dish of desire'

Known for his love of nature, the Dutch designer Frederik Roijé has realised this rather lavish birdfeeder aptly named ‘Dish of desire.’ In its form, the pendant design resembles that of a tiered tea tray synonymous with the indulgent and very British tradition of afternoon tea. Here however, scones, cakes, and cucumber sandwiches are replaced with grains, kernels and seeds as this elegant piece is intended for outdoor use as a serving plate for birds rather than tea-goers. Available in a one-, two-, three- or five-course versions, ‘Dish of desire’ was presented last week in Milan’s Zona Tortona, on Via Novi 5.

Made of weatherproof red cedar, porcelain and aluminium, the single-tiered version of the design can also placed atop a table or other flat surface and the entire ‘Dish of Desire’ collection is made in Roijé’s native Holland.

It is not Roijé’s first birdfeeder – back in 2007, the Dutch designer has created this tongue-in-cheek series called ‘Holy Homes.’
