BEEKMAN: A Minimalist, Flat-Packed Bird Feeder by SHIFT

Philadelphia-based SHIFT began their quest by thinking about what kind of space they’d be happy in if they were birds. That led to creating a minimalist bird feeder with an open floor plan and two open sides to give the birds that indoor/outdoor feeling. BEEKMAN features a sloped roof to keep the birds and the food dry, along with a walnut rod that offers both inside and outside seating.

The feeder hangs from a braided cord, which can be suspended from a pole or a tree.

BEEKMAN is made from a durable, rust-proof aluminum in either white or yellow that arrives flat-packed and ready to assemble. All you do is fold the walls up, the roof down, and then fit one on top of the other, and it’s ready to go without any fasteners.

BEEKMAN is made from 100% recyclable aluminum and manufactured close to the SHIFT Studio (within a 100 mile radius), as the brand continues to focus on sustainability.
