“The little birdies at HemingwayDesign say Save our mid century tower blocks. We like flying high. “
This is the tagline of Wayne Hemmingway and his daughter Tilly  bird box project which they designed in the image of a mid-century tower block to raise awareness for a conservation project. They were one of the designers involved in the collaborate between RSPB and the British Fashion Council to coincide with both LFW and National Birdbox week that ran concurrently from 14th February.
There were eleven designers that took part in the project and they included well known designers such as  Vivienne Westwood, Zanra Rhodes, Giles Deacon, Orla Kiely, Jasper Conran and John Rocha amongst others.
The project was on show at LFW and then auctioned off on eBay to raise money for the bird conservation project.  The auction has now ended but you can still take a look at these fabulous bird boxes.
