Flat pack birdhouse


Hochschule Munchen university project

February 2015

6 weeks

Munich, Germany


As a flat pack minimalist birdhouse, I wanted to draw attention to its transformation. Using gravity the birdhouse snaps into place in a split second spectacle. The construction is fairly simple with 5 main components held together by a polypropylene hinge and the hanging string. I used neodymium magnets in the roof and base to click securely together and hold in strong wind.


I wanted the semantics of the packaging and installment to be clear and simple. As seen above, the installation is as easy as placing the seed ball inside and hanging on a branch.
