Bee-inspired vase from Libertiny

honeycomb-vaseDesigner Tomas Gabzdil Libertiny took a look at nature and decided to work on this cool looking vase which was shaped after that of a bee hive, and this vase can be used to coax real bees to colonize it after embossing some wax sheets with a honeycomb pattern. If you're interested in seeing the finished product, you can always head down to Droog's Smart Deco 2 show in Milan later this year - hopefully the bees in Italy won't colonize it by then, giving a stinging reception to those attending the show!

Libertiny has also given some insight on his thought process behind the vase, and I quote, "To give a form to this natural product it has occurred more than logical to choose a form of a vase as a cultural artifact. Beeswax comes from flowers and in the form of a vase ends up serving flowers on their last journey.". It is also interesting to note that the process to create this unique vase took 40,000 bees per week.
