Behive pendant light is an elaborate objet d'art that offers incredible aesthetics regardless of whether it is turned on or off. Designed by Werner Aisslinger for Foscarini, Behive pendant is inspired by the rounded shape of a beehive and features an inverse pattern that translates as shadows onto its surroundings. Behive is also available as a table lamp.
Behive offers a warm ambient light to which a light directed downwards is added. A diffuser screen located on the inside conceals the technical parts and leaves the light source free to illuminate downwards. The white light takes on a double value: it emphasizes the particular graphic art nature of the rings and focuses the lighting on a well-defined area.
