By nature, a beehive relies on distinct yet interconnected ‘cells’ or honeycombs that play an important role and relationship to the overall health of the hive.
Similarly, Nathan Allan’s new Honeycomb product is made of ‘cells’ that create an innovative system of strong yet elegantly refined panels that can be used in partitions, feature walls, facades and cladding. Lead production designer Greg Carter says “it has the deepest texture of any glass Nathan Allan has ever produced and required brand new mold designs and original melting programs in our kilns, to successfully form the glass”.
“Honeycomb glass is unique in two very specific ways,” explains director Barry Allan. “The size of the pattern — the large-scale individual cells are something very exclusive in my industry — and how each cell protrudes 2.5 inches [63mm] outwards, creating an incredible three-D effect.”
