iF DESIGN TALENT AWARD_01 2021

This design uses a spiral elastic structure, and uses the tree branches as fulcrums to firmly position the bird's nest in the tree. It is designed for quick construction and installation and suits common birds or songbirds. The product material has excellent strength and toughness. The length of the product can be selected adjusted to the spacing of the tree branches, and the product can also be stretched and bent within a certain range to adapt to different branches. The arcs on both sides give birds a reservoir of natural rainwater for drinking.

This is a simple idea and solution. Good design as well.
