Menu and Monique Engelund have designed the avant-garde bird pavilion Barcelona as a tribute to Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. The Pavilion is a combination of bird-bath and feeding table and it is made out of natural acacia wood by Menu. That is why the object develops a characteristic patina with time.
The avant-garde Barcelona bird pavilion is a captivating and decorative manifestation that indulges birds with a place where they can eat and bathe. The bird bath – a black pool which displays the characteristics of acacia wood on a bribing way – is simply removed from the table, cleaned and refilled.
The feeding table was elegantly placed under the pavilion’s ceiling where the food can be safely placed on two spits.
Inspiration source for the bird pavilion Barcelona was one of the masterpieces by Mies van der Rohe: the famous Barcelona Pavilion of the Expo 1929. ”Mies van der Rohe was our inspiration source as cultural figure of modern architecture for this unique Menu design. It is important for us to enlarge our borders and to live originality without limitations. A stylish pavilion of this size makes the way for still more original thoughts”, explained Bjarne Hansen, Creative Director from Menu.Also in our blog:
