Balancing anatomical correctness with a refined design sensibility, these DIY Beetle Models by Assembli are as fun to put together as they are to admire once they're finished. The finely detailed design includes rendering of the beetle's joints as well as wing venation. The Hercules Beetle is available in a brilliant Cobalt Blue or Lime Green and comes with an optional display mounting board. 

Fun fact: the wing cases (elytra) of actual Hercules Beetles can vary in color based on humidity!

About the Designer

Assembli is a Dutch brand, a collaboration between printing company Lankhorst and designer Joop Bource. Together they develop fun and contemporary interior projects with a challenging twist.
