LDF 2021 / Mellifera by Arthur Mamou-Mani at Fortnum & Mason

For the upcoming London Design Festival – running from 18 to 26 September 2021 – and to celebrate the important activity of bees in our cities, French architect Arthur Mamou-Mani has designed Mellifera, an installation of printed beehives in 3D who will dance in the atrium of Fortnum & Mason at Piccadilly.
In an aim to highlight the need for rewilding of our urban spaces, the 3D printed modules will make their way up the atrium to an illuminated ceiling made of bioplastics and will showcase advances in material innovation and technology.
Made from fermented sugar, the components of the installation are fully compostable and in the spirit of the circular economy will be reusable after the event.
Individual components will be on sale following the Festival to raise funds to support the UK’s bee populations, with 50% of all proceeds donated to Bees for Development.
