The Hive Pendant Lamp is a stylish piece resembling that of a natural beehive, as its name suggests. The distinct piece, available in both vibrant yellow and polished aluminium offers two distinct aesthetics depending on the chosen colourway.
Its striking sculptural shape is both aesthetically stimulating and functional, as it allows light to diffuse within its surroundings in interesting ways. An elegant piece, the Hive is most effective above a dining table as a focal point of the room. Due to its multi-layered shape, the Hive promises to illuminate the room without any additional unwanted glare.

What makes Verner Panton's Hive Light a good pendant light?
With some pendant lights, glare can be an issue. Whereas the Hive Pendant can hang at any height without dazzling its audience. This modern pendant light has an ingenious abstract shape with a difference. Panton's Hive Pendant uses concentric shades of varying sizes layered together to create a completely glare-free pendant light.
Should all my light fixtures be the same metal?
Matching metal finishes is not necessary for a modern home. Lighting fixtures are especially flexible. They emit light anyway which almost always distorts the colour of the metal, be it aluminium or steel. If you have very different colours and metals then opt to keep them 2-2.5m apart.
Is the Hive Pendant from Verpan hard to clean?
No, the Hive light is easy to clean. Tightly wring out a soft cloth soaked in warm water with a small amount of mild detergent. Then turn off the light and simply wipe the layered surfaces clean (not the bulb).
What inspired the Hive pendant's name?
As you might expect the Hive pendant light's name is inspired by the organic layers and sculptural forms seen in a beehive. Originally intended to be a floor lamp Verpan discovered the design to be unbalanced when prototyping. The lamp head has been kept as it was intended and now the piece is a pendant light instead. Panton famously drew inspiration from nature's spectacular patterns, colours and forms.
How is light dispersed from the Hive Pendant?
Hive emits a lateral and downward glow, giving a good level of surrounding light. The light cannot dazzle its audience as it travels out via several concentric shades. Perfect diffusion.

Beautiful item arrived earlier than indicated.
Customer service informed me of this & then followed up after delivery to make sure it arrived safely.
Excellent communication and speedy delivery...
Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.
Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.
We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.
We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.
Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.
Fantastic service, Jonathan was extremely helpful through my purchase.
Definitely recommend and would use again.
First class service.

Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.
I would definitely buy from them again.

Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.
He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.
Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.
Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.
The service is superb and the website is so intuitive!
10 out of 10! :D
It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.
I can’t recommend highly enough.
Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.
Great products - really pleased with my order.
So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.
Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.
