What if I told you that you could design and construct your own Bee Home?
Well, SPACE10 ( IKEA’s research and design lab) has teamed up with Bakken & Bæck and designer Tanita Klein to launch open-sourced bee homes.
This is an awesome open fabrication project with a heart!
The Bee Home site walks you through an easy step-by-step process from design to fabrication.
Yoiu get to choose your bee home’s height, the number of “floors” it will have, plus much more.
My children went absolutely bonkers for this project. They loved it!
Bees Are Essential For ALL Life On Earth
One third of all human food relies on bees but they are under increasing threat of extinction. And it’s our fault!
The Bee Home open source design project make it easy for anyone, anywhere, to design and build a beautiful home for bees.
Because if bees don’t have a home on Earth, neither will we.
