Inspired by the architecture of a hive-slats of wood glued on Plexiglas, with its cells stitched with delicate bees with incessant activity, this lamp diffuses a light that is both warm-hearted and comforting, as comforting as a honeymoon. It gives an intimate atmosphere to the surrounding space.

I worked an olive board, while keeping the natural borders. The olive tree has a very characteristic two-tone veining. So I kept the colors and the natural drawing while working on the sapwood which is clear and without veining. I have written and engraved on the sapwood a sentence of the Roman poet Virgil: "omnia vincit amor" (Love triumphs over everything). The edge between the heartwood and the sapwood makes me think of a landscape, I added a setting sun, gilded with the leaf. Then I tinted the sapwood with alcoholic dyes worked with rag to get a fade of colors. Finally, a varnish was applied on the gold leaf and the rest of the board was protected with tung oil (vegetable oil from an Asian nut).
