Wondering why we seldomly see designs that improve the lives of other living beings than humans, Fenhann created his Air Bee ‘n’ Bee, a kind of luxury hotel for bees, exquisitely handmade of upcycled teak, mahogany, walnut and oak.
The ‘hotel’ offers giving different room sizes for various species of wild bees, each guest their own private entrance at the front of the hotel, which can be adjusted on its round pillar according to orientation of the sun. It can also be placed close to the flowers that the bees prefer.
The inspiration for the geometric pattern comes from patterned parquet flooring and from the Japanese Yosegi-Zaiku technique. “Why shouldn’t animals occasionally deserve the same kind of luxury with which we humans surround ourselves?” Fenhann asks.
The SE2020 exhibition was shown in the Tivoli Garden in Copenhagen
