For World Bee Day in May, IKEA and its R&D lab lab SPACE10 teamed up with design studio Bakken & Bæck and industrial designer Tanita Klein to create a new initiative called Bee Home. The project aims to give homes to solitary bees, which are responsible for a third of the world's food supply—and just one solitary bee is capable of pollinating as much as 120 honeybees.
With Bee Home, people can build their own tiny community for bees by adapting the style or height of the designs. By downloading the design files and sending them to be produced via a maker space, the flat-pack homes for bees can be assembled to support a vital part of our planet.
