Honeycomb by Quinze and Milan
Quinze & Milan is a design studio run by the mad man and egotist, Arne Quinze. Quinze, for American subculture freaks, was partly responsible for the massive wood structure in the Blackrock desert during Burning Man 2006 known as the “Belgian Waffle“. Before the Belgian Waffle came about, I had never payed much attention to Mr. Quinze, but there is no doubt after exploring Quinze’s work that he is one of the most important European designers today.
I’ve decided to feature a more subtle project of Mr. Quinze’s. It’s called Honeycomb, and it is as simple as it sounds. Inspired by the structures of bees, the honeycomb is an extremely flexible shelving structure that can be safely stacked up to seven meters high. Possibly more compelling is it’s ability to make you feel like a lying insect.
