The Beehive light series came to life by exploring how far we could push and deform metal during the forging process.

Using an industrial power hammer, we flattened an 8mm steel bar down to only 1mm thick.
The process transformed a perfectly straight, machine made metal bar into something unpredictable, textural and handmade.
This became the material inspiration behind Beehive, a simple form that acknowledges the Suffolk bees who provide their beeswax to seal every one of our lights.
