Hexagons are apparently the most efficient of shapes, in that they require less material to construct, which is why bees are fond of them, and that they fit together perfectly without gaps. And frankly they just look great; more interesting than squares and less ubiquitous than circles. They also seem to be having a bit of a moment in the spotlight. This office I shot recently, featured hexagonal tables, Tom Dixon designed hexagonal lights, but most impressive of all, 2 feature walls in the reception made up of walnut hexagonal tiles, by Giles Miller.
