Hermes Honeybee – 2014


The brief was to create a paper honey bee inspired by the “metamorphosis” theme of Hermes fashion brand which was installed at the store in Istanbul Atatürk Airport. The hardest part of the project was to design the wings. At the end of some prototypes, we concluded with an idea of folded translucent paper which looked opaque and gave the sense of flapping.

Dimensions: 60cm x 60cm x 40cm
Hand-cut, body: painted acrylic on paper, wings: translucent paper.
