The goal was to develop a bird feeder by utilizing research and the design process. Form and assembly function was the main drive for this design. The mina bird feeder took influence from both D.I.Y. (Do it Yourself) style design as well as the italian designer Ferroccio Laviani. The tool-less assembly creates a visual of no hardware, nor machined finishes. It resembles a fin model and can be easily assembled. The mina Bird Feeder is both beautiful and functional.
