The nogg chicken coop is a modern chicken house that has been designed in the shape of an egg. It has been designed to house from 2-4 chickens and is to encourage domestic farming while adding a touch of playful elegance. The nogg sits beautifully in any garden, urban or rural environment and is designed to enhance and compliment it’s surroundings. The nogg aids and advocates the provenance of homegrown foods.
The nogg is engineered and crafted by hand in the UK and It is Matthew Hayward's ability to mix precission engineering with his inate empathy for materials and craftsmanship that makes his work quietly brilliant and makes this a beautiful and unique object above and beyond being a pretty cool chicken house!
The doors have been reinforced with a stainless steel frame and ribbing to combat the possible effects of the elements. The innovative glass top twists and lifts to aid ventilation and is just one of the details that really elevates the idea of what a domestic coop can be. The nogg chicken coop sits on a concrete base that is fastened with stainless steel rings which keeps it damp proof and stable.
The nogg is an enterprising collaboration between furniture designer and engineer Matthew Hayward and Creative Director Nadia Turan. It is a great example of how a random thought became a reality.
We decided to come up with an alternative chicken coop and a brand that would surprise and delight you just as much as your first fresh eggs will. It wasn’t long before we thought of the shape and design details and after an arduous, stressful year the nogg (prototype 01A) hatched.
