From an architectural viewpoint, the hexagons that constitute a honeycomb’s structure enable an incredibly efficient spatial distribution as they leave no part unused. Therefore, this table mimics the modular potential of the honeycomb forms, suggesting a design that can continue expanding itself.

Thanks to groundbreaking processes such as water-jet cutting, the obsidian hexagons attach themselves to the copper slabs creating patterns distinguished by two colors. As the harmony of beehives emerges from order –every member has a determined place in it, even queens themselves, who are born from equally hexagonal cocoons– this entire layout simultaneously grants solidity and a delicate feeling to the structure, in which its support complements the perfect geometry of its whole system.
