The Giant Birdsnest


A few days ago, I posted a story about our chickens and their laying habits.  My son found this interesting couch or bed, and it seemed an appropriate piece to post for my Cool Stuff for the week. Cool Stuff is a piece of furniture or design or even artwork that I feel is very interesting and I share it with the readers of this blog. This ‘nest’ is really a playful piece of furniture created Merav (Salush) Eitan and Gaston Zahr,  OGE CreativeGroup. You have to jump into it to enjoy it.

The Giant Birdsnest aka “Giant Birdsnest for creating new ideas” was conceived and created as a prototype for new and inspiring socializing space: a fusion of furniture and playground: A comfortable informal and sensual soft space.

The wooden nest is filled with highly comfortable egg-shaped sitting poofs which allow ergonomic sitting positions and various configurations for informal meetings and social exchange.


The nest comes in various sizes, from a small and intimate nest for one, to 2-3 people up to a 4.50 m diameter big version which can host up to 16 people at once – the soft space is perfect, comfortable and inspiring place for resting, browsing the web, reading, relaxing, loving, talking, briefing, discussing (…)

Its powerful, yet simple concept and intriguing character needs no explanation or user manual: Ready to be used, ready for playing or working in.

Simply jump in and enjoy.

  1. All I can say to this is that I seriously want one! (Well . . . perhaps not seriously . . . but I think you’ll get my meaning.) What a fantastic idea – and a very appropriate follow-up to your lovely story.


    1. Hahaha – Oh Millie, it sure looks comfy. My son and I wondered about the nest itself, do you think it is made of wood or rubber? It must be has to be. I think one of the nest would be great under my large gum trees.


      1. The outer framework looks like pieces of wood of some type – perhaps fixed onto an inner frame. (That idea came from my husband!). I suppose it needs to be strong. After discussion with my daughter (!) we have decided that the ‘eggs’ are perhaps shaped cushions, or some kind of beanbags. They’d have to be soft to be so comfortable. It’s not often posts generate such interesting family discussions in our house, so I hope you don’t mind their contributions.
