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.
