World Bee Day – Bee Home by SPACE101 min read
My Folks keep bees, they did before I was born and in the last year or so they have finally gotten back to it big time. They LOVE it. and thats why I didn’t mind when my ma messaged early this morning to tell me it was World Bee Day!
And just in time for World Bee Day, SPACE10 have created a system for making a bee home/hotel for your own garden. Not just practical, but beautiful as well.
You configure the Bee Home on the website, generate and download CNC files and take them to a local Makerspace, then BOOM, you are helping the bees.
Here is my Bee Home, 8 stories, with a stand.
SPACE10 created Bee Home in collaboration with technology-driven design studio Bakken & Bæck and industrial designer Tanita Klein.
SPACE10 is a research and design lab on a mission to enable a better everyday life for people and planet, and is proudly supported by IKEA.
Design your very own Bee Home in a few minutes. Just select size, visual style and desired placement, like a rooftop, balcony or garden — or play around with the shuffle button. Your design will instantly update.
Download the design files for free and share them with a makerspace. We’ll help you find a local space, and they’ll help you create your Bee Home.
Once assembled, place your Bee Home facing the morning sun. Plant some flowers in your local area to help the native bees thrive.Finally, upload a few photos of your new Bee Home and place it on the community map.
