Nectar hanging light by Rebecca Asquith
“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.
The shade is made from 100% polyester (92% recycled content) that is UV stabilised to provide resistance to colour fade and moisture so that it won’t stain, rot or break down. It is also a non-rip, non-fray, non-toxic, non-allergenic, highly durable and easy-to-clean material.
– It is cleverly constructed in such a way that it does not require any glue or clips for its assembly or any frame work to keep its shape, apart from a steel ring top and bottom.
– Die cut with the parts tightly nested together to minimise waste.
– All off-cuts from the production process are taken back by the manufacturer to be recycled into new material.
