The Incredible Art Of Tomas Libertiny & His Bees

With a Little Help of the Bees by Tomas Gabzdil Libertiny of Studio Libertiny was part of Droog‘s Smart Deco 2 Show at Milan 07.

Libertiny made the vase shaped hive by building a wax infrastructure that the bees then colonized, building a their comb around it.

Libertiny calls the process “slow prototyping”–it took 40,000 bees one week to make the vase.

Their latest installation Unbearable Lightness (2010), inspired by Dostoyevkij’s Brothers Karamazov, is a continuation of their earlier work The Honeycomb Vase (2006).
