In an effort to preserve the ancient art of beekeeping and safely bring it to a new, urban audience, industrial designer Francesco Faccin has created the Honey Factory. The metal and wood parallelogram structure features a prominent chimney that forms a focal point for the piece of micro architecture, while protecting the bees from harm. A viewing window towards the base of the structure, meanwhile, provides a close-up view of the hives and beekeeping in action for budding apiarists of all ages.
