Nature was one of the inspiration sources for Behive by Werner Aisslinger and Foscarini. A table lamp that reminds of a hive, just as its name reveals, emerged.
The bellied, sensitive and simultaneously elegant volume of Behive is created by an overlapping of rings whose diameter becomes wider to the top continuously – beginning at the smallest base which seems to float on the lamp.
Thanks to the special form and the inclination of the rings, the light source from Behive isn't directly viewable. This makes a part of the attraction and fascination of the table lamp which is emotion, object and decoration at the same time with its soft light effects.
Magical and suggestive when it is switched on, Behive becomes a poetic sculpture when it is switched off. This reveals its real double nature: the white of the light corpus is darkened and shadow comes out of light.
Behive is a lamp that creates emotions on a fascinating way being perfectly suitable to emboss a special ambience or private areas in different places – whether on a piece of furniture, a table or the floor.
The Behive table lamp possesses a dimmer and is made out of ABS-plastic and polycarbonate by Foscarini. The needed illuminant E27 socket is not included in the delivery package.
