“Nectar” is a hanging lampshade collection designed by Rebecca Asquith of Designtree. The design of the lampshade is inspired by the hexagonal shape of a honeycomb cell. In designer’s words, “Hexagonal shapes are prolific throughout nature. Most notably, these shapes are seen in the hive of the honey bee. A honeycomb cell is one of nature’s most efficient designs – there is not one unnecessary surface. The cell is strong, structurally sound, and very light compared with the volume of delicious liquid that is stored within.
Made from lightweight felted polyester, the Nectar hanging lampshade draws its inspiration from the beehive. The soft and simple form resonates with us tapping into the deep and ancient association we have with bees. During the day it is a soft reminder of the beauty of nature and the amazing strength of the honeycomb structure. At night the Nectar comes alive with a warm and comforting inner glow that also highlights the structure and craftsmanship of the shade.”
