Laib Wax Room

The Phillips Collection in Washington, D.C. has commissioned a beeswax chamber by artist Wolfgang Laib. The German-born conceptual artist has been creating beeswax lined rooms for over 25 years. According to the WSJ, “(h)e uses hundreds of pounds of pure melted beeswax much like plaster, smoothly coating the walls and ceilings until they almost resemble yellow marble- except with a warm glow”. Cool.
