    “Some birds are not meant to be caged, that's all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.”

    Flight is the quintessential symbol of freedom. Free from all restraints, birds defy all types of resistance in the infinite space that is the sky, overcoming gravity’s downward pull, and can head anywhere. Nevertheless, even nature’s freest creatures develop a need to count on a place that offers them protection and safety. As a consequence, we might imagine the abode of a winged creature more as a “cradle” rather than a cage—a safe place where it can protect itself and nest. They strive to build their home with everything that nature offers them: mud, twigs, straw, feathers… They manage to bring real genuine works of art to life just using their beak and their claws: an ability that, we must remark, makes them “natural architects”.

    The “House of Birds” workshop draws inspiration precisely from this collective imaginary and carries it over to the sphere of creativity. Roberto Giacomucci, curator of the project, coordinated a workshop of 24 well-known Italian and foreign designers invited to meet one challenge: to design a birdhouse. They were free to express and experiment their own vision through functions, forms, colors, and finishes.

    Action Giromari, in the Marche region, is the space where these projects come to life; thanks to technicians, artisans, technologies and a profound knowledge of materials, we welcome ideas and design proposal with love and with the only mission to find a solution for making them real objects.

    The creations of House of Birds will be introduced in the Garden of Triennale di Milano, in Viale Emilio Alemagna 6, 20121 Milano, with an exhibit from 4 to 9 April 2017 during the next Salone del Mobile di Milano.
