This very special edition of this iconic lamp is available exclusively from Nest in the UK.
This limited edition iteration of the iconic Beehive lamp is finished in a distinctive brick-red colourway, which is certain to add a real sense of style to any space. Originally designed for the University of Jyväskylä in Finland in 1953, the Beehive stands as one of Aalto’s most popular lighting designs and is one of the most recognisable pieces in Artek’s celebrated catalogue. Thanks to the shade’s elegantly curved tiers, separated by perforated metal rings, the Beehive creates a golden-toned illumination, with a soft, pleasant twilight directed in a masterly way.
As one of the great architects and furniture designers of the 20th century, Finnish designer Alvar Aalto breathed life and warmth into modernism, placing emphasis on "organic" geometry; supple, natural materials; and a respect for human feeling.
