Maceta Colmena es un punto de preservación para las abejas, una pieza de forma simple para uso en el hogar. Además de poder cultivar especies útiles para el usuario en ella, ofrece la oportunidad de proteger a estos insectos y al medio ambiente.

Colmena Plant Pot is a conservation spot for bees, a piece with a simple shape for home use, that not only does it offer the possibility to grow plants for domestic use, but it allows us to protect bees and with them, our environment. 

Gran parte de las plantas que existen a nuestro alrededor son polinizadas por las abejas, de ellas depende gran parte de la flora y diversidad botánica. La polinización es necesaria en muchos de los cultivos que producen alimentos para los seres humanos, una tercera parte de estos plantíos son polinizados por abejas. Se trata, pues, de un proceso de suma importancia en nuestra vida y en la de estos insectos, la principal especie polinizadora del planeta.

En los últimos años la población de abejas ha disminuido considerablemente en nuestro país y en todo el mundo. Se han detectado una serie de factores entrelazados como origen probable de este problema, entre ellos, ciertos agentes patógenos y el abuso de pesticidas.

Bees pollinize a great amount of plants that surround us. Much of the flora and botanical diversity in our planet depends directly on bees. Pollination is necessary for many of the crops for human consumption, of which one third are pollinized by bees. This is therefore a very important process for human life, as well as for the life of bees, the main pollinizer on Earth. 

In recent years, the population of bees has decreased significantly around the world. There are many factors that, combined, are considered to be the cause of this problem. Among these, certain pathogen agents and the use of pesticides.

Hola. Soy Luis Vargas, diseñador industrial jalisciense. Concibo el diseño como la oportunidad de generar relaciones entre usuarios y objetos a través de la comunicación entre los mismos y con el espacio en que se desarrollan. Me interesa la investigación y la experimentación manual, el comportamiento humano cotidiano y los procesos de producción locales.

Hi. My name is Luis Vargas. I’m an industrial designer from Jalisco, Mexico. I conceive design as the opportunity for creating relations between users and objects, through communication between these, as well as with the space in which they develop.
