Account: BeHive Suspension
Design: Werner Aisslinger
Foscarini presents at the Salone del Mobile in Milan a new suspension lamp version of BeHive. A perfect combination of poetry, formal purity and high tech research, designed by Werner Aisslinger.
The name “BeHive” (a shortening of “beehive”) describes the shape and horizontal striped pattern of the diffuser and its emanating warm, soft light. The appealing volume of BeHive is the result of the overlapping of a sequence of rings in successively larger sizes.: Deceptively simple and regular in appearance, the rings of BeHive are the result of a highly complex collaborative engineering process and materials research for which Foscarini is so well known. Beguiling, formally pure and technically perfect, BeHive denotes a winning and recognisable personality, destined to become a classic.
