Frank Brümmel (one of invited artists) envisaged and designed a terrace table made out of concrete, called Bee Dance. The idea of the table is to visualise the waggle dance of the bees. The table was implemented with the help of know-how offered by Consolis Technology and skillful handcraft by Contesta. Different kinds of special techniques were combined in the table project, such as uniquely shaped mould, coloured concrete with crushed glass, partly exposed and partly polished concrete surface. The colours and the shape of the table matches with the honeycomb paving used in the garden.
