Object of Desire: Bee Hotels

June 12, 2017

Working in his Buckinghamshire studio in the woodlands of High Wycombe, designer Geoffrey Fisher uses locally coppiced wood and other natural materials to create simple, useful products that evoke the natural surroundings that surround him.

Currently coveting: Fisher’s bee hotels, made from branches, to provide shelter for sanctuary for pollinators.

A set of three Bee Hotels comes with screws to fasten them to fences, sheds, or tree trunks and is £30 from Geoffrey Fisher.

Most wild bees nest in holes or tunnels in branches; the diameter of the Bee Hotels is the right size for an individual bee to make a nest for its larvae.
