SPACE10 Session: Introducing Bee Home

Online, on Zoom 17:00 - 18:00 CEST 02.06.20

In this SPACE10 Session, we are proud to invite you for a conversation with the team behind our latest release: the Bee Home project. Meet the collaborators and hear more about how you can support the global solitary bee population.

This Week

Bees are essential for all life on our planet —including a third of all human food. But bees are also under increasing threat of extinction because of human impact. That’s why SPACE10 wants to make it easy for anyone, anywhere to design a beautiful home for this vital animal. Bee Home takes advantage of the newest developments in digital fabrication and parametric design, and introduces entirely new distribution methods to enable a fully democratic design process, where anyone can design and fabricate their own Bee Home locally to place in their gardens, balconies or neighbourhoods.

This SPACE10 Session is the opening event for the forthcoming summer exhibition at SPACE10 Gallery in Copenhagen, where you’ll be able to drop by, play around with the design and have your own Bee Home fabricated on demand.
