Honeycomb

ハニカム構造

Bees / Tending young

The famous hexagonal grids are private rooms for the bees’ young grubs – amazing efficiency using minimum material for the walls to make maximum space. Bees are geniuses and humans borrow the honeycomb structure for many applications.

この美しい六角形がならぶハニカムは、できるだけ少ない素材を使って効率良く小さな個室を作り、その中で蜂の幼虫を育てるための、驚きの構造です。自然界のこの手際の良さを人間も応用し、あちこちでハニカム構造が使われています。
