The number of bees is decreasing fast, with little remedy. So we were very happy to spot lots of bee-focused projects at this year’s London’s degree shows! Seen above, Thrive Hive by Kingston University’s graduate Tom Back is a modern approach to urban beehives that uses local wood, straw and string while exploring traditional building techniques from Kenya.

Made from hand blown glass and renewable, heat tolerant cork, these three multicolored lamps by Harry Allnatt are simply stunning.

We are big fans of ‘no glue no screw’ furniture as it can easily be disassembled for recycling or up-cycling. The process also takes a bit more thought and creativity than just quickly fixing parts by screwing them together, making it much more engaging.

Designer-maker Luke Diaz created a stitch-wood collection of petite furniture made from local ash and hand-sewn non-bleached string.
