Lightweight yet exceptionally strong, these Bee Hive Lamps [1] are a series of luminaries inspired in the busy insects’ homes. Created by London-based designer Marc Krusin [2] for Alpac Srl [3], they’ve been constructed by layering Re-board [4], a patented, recycled, rigid paperboard manufactured in Sweden. And despite having a hard shell, Krusin’s Bee Hive Lamps give off a warm and inviting glow. Recycled, compostable and brilliant, we originally spotted this sweet lamp hanging at Milan Design Week [5].
