bomdesign billboard birdhouse

We love stumbling across ways to incorporate nature into our urban lifestyle, and birdhouses always seem to do this effectively. We’ve featured birdhouses many times before, ranging from clean and modern to the purely practical. These simply constructed boxes caught our eye when we spotted them at Notcot, though truth be told, we took them for mailboxes at first glance.

Built out of recycled billboard material and found hardware, they are made by Atelier Bomdesign and available for 60 euros each.

    As a typographer, I cannot tell you how much I love these! What a wonderful example of reclaiming materials to create a secondary product! Perfect for the front of every design studio! These should be developed slightly into mail boxes too! I know what I am buying all my colleagues for Christmas!!

    I really like birds and I really like this idea. One suggestion. I heard that in really cold climates that birds feet can stick to frozen metal. I have not confirmed this myself. Consider a non-metal perch. This might not be a factor in warmer climates so you might not have thought of it.

    It’s like the Freitag of birdhouses!
