Straight lines and curves meet in Kassa Studio‘s series of playful architectural bird baths.
Kassa Studio, founded in 2017 by sisters Korine Krüger and Sanet Fau Stegmann, focuses on creating objects that tell stories, have purpose, and connect people through well-crafted design.
Their latest collection, aptly referred to as ‘architecture for birds’, comprises of a trio of sculptural handcrafted bird baths which are intended to add a pop of colour to any outdoor space and invite birds to have a drink of water.
Made from powder-coated mild steel and set on a concrete base, each bird bath is handmade by highly-skilled local artisans.
Finished in bright coral, the round and angular openings of Bird Bath 1 create access voids and give your feathered friends a great views of the garden. Bird Bath 2, with its rich khaki hue, is characterised by a circular splash pool raised and supported by a square nested base. The seamless lines of Bird Bath 3 stretch and curve around a circular bird-viewing window. This narrow elevated outdoor sculpture comes in a shade of ivory.
“Good design is not limited to scale, and everyone should own a thing of beauty that makes their heart sing,” says Korine Krüger. We couldn’t agree more.
