Getting close to nature: Stay in a nesting box

A nesting box for people might sound a tad claustrophobic.

But a Norwegian company has invented the human nesting box, and it works in fact quite the opposite.

With the large round windows facing the mountains and the fjords in Norway, it seems the view is almost infinite.

the Boxes is called Birdboxes, and it is the company Livit, who have designed them. So far there are set up respectively in the island of Langeland and Fauske in Norway. But the designer behind, Torstein Aa, hope to be able to put more up over Norway and says to Ekstra Bladet, that the process has already started.

He got the idea for birdboxes, because he wanted to bring people closer to nature without leaving so many damaging tracks.

- We would like to create a product that could provide unique experiences with a minimal foot pressure in the nature, in a way, a minimalist escape. We asked ourselves, how can we create something that takes you as close to nature as possible while you still have the comfort from home, says Torstein Aa, designer at Livit.
