Taking a cue from nature, Rebecca Asquith’s Nectar Lamp [2] reflects the beauty found in the naturally occurring hexagonal shapes of beehives. The fixture is made from lightweight felted polyester that is composed of 92 percent recycled content and is UV stabilized. The benefit to this recycled material is that any scrap pieces from the manufacturing process are sent back to the manufacturer to be recycled once again into new material. If you dig the warm glow of this beehive-inspired lamp vote for it in our Bright Ideas Lighting Design Competition! [2]
