    Jean Jullien: Le Nid. Nantes, France

Jean Jullien's Nest is eggs-cellent and all other egg puns rolled into one

Posted by Catherine Gaffney,

We last featured Jean Jullien’s work in May, but when stuff like this project comes through, in all its egg-soaked glory, we can’t not tell you about it! The London-based French designer has just completed Le Nid (The Nest) for a space in Nantes, his hometown.

Situated on top of a 144 metre building, it overlooks the city, and is a combination of bar, viewing point, and art-installation in one. The bar itself is located along the body of a giant bird, who occasionally shuts its eyes for a snooze. Around the room, there are egg-shaped tables and chairs where people can relax and chat, and a viewing point for those who want to enjoy a birds-eye view of the streets. Check out his absolutely awesome developmental illustrations as well. Wow. We’ll all be flocking to this place. Sorry.
