Canadian artist Kristiina Lahde found a beautiful way to recycle old phone books. By creating mesmerizing honeycomb shapes from paper, Lahde gave these booklets a more artistic rendering. The yellow pages add a realism to the sculptures, which are formed by several phone books piled up together.

These towers of design consist of folded paper to form intrinsic patterns identical to beehives. Rightly entitled Hive, this art piece is a recollection of not only information but also naturist aesthetics. Bee’s constructions are common sources of inspiration for designers looking to add a geometrical touch to their creations. 

Hive by Kristiina Lahde was exhibit at the Oakville Galleries in Gairloch Gardens in Ontario during the summer to great acclaim.
