amsterdam-based design agency frederik roijé  presents ‘dish of desire’– a bird feeding system that creates a varied menu
for neighboring aves. the collection is made from durable red cedar, porcelain, and aluminum materials in holland.
the ‘dish of desire’ collection takes it’s form in either one feeding-platform with shelter, a two dish and sheltered system,
a three-tiered feeder, or a five-plate contraption. the series is based on the notion of negating the lack of variation for
bird menu in the winter time by means of humans providing for birds by hanging a piece from this collection with
assorted nutrition near by.
