Birds of a Feather Feed Together

October 24, 2011 by

A feast for our fine feathered friend’s eyes and ours, Dish of Desire, designed by Frederik Roijé, is a series of bird feeders inspired by the designer’s love of beautiful tableware and delicious food.

Feeling that birds could benefit from a varied menu that is hard to find in wintertime, Roijé was motivated to design the tiered feeder that can be suspended from a tree or hung on a balcony. And Dish of Desire is social: with its many tiers, it invites birds to sup together. Hang a number of them, and you have a veritable bird restaurant.

This feeder is indeed a bird of a different feather: depending on the extravagance of one’s feeding mission, Roijé offers us four different models: a one, two, three, four, or five-course bird feeder. Think aperitif, appetizer, entree, dessert and after-dinner drinks.

I really like how the dome above the platter looks like the top of a fancy restaurant service piece. Assembled from aluminum parts, red cedar wood, and the finest bone china (but of course), all materials are weather resistant for outdoor use.

If you like Dish of Desire, take a look at Breed Retreat, Roijé’s stylish hen house that we included in an earlier post about eco-friendly designer digs for pets and other domestic animals.
