Hive

“I came up with the Hive Chair while working at the Bauhaus. The challenge was to create a 3D space out of 2D shapes. The first version was a double sized Hive but when we made it, I chopped it in half and turned it into a chair… Made from sustainably sourced hardwood plywoods, the neat thing about the Hive is that it is over 90% efficient on materials because all the cuts are concentric.”

Hideaway

A Hive chair hanging outside in a garden, with a small child sat inside, lost in her thoughts, Peppa pig, violin class, little Timmy, no-one know's what she's thinking...

“I need a hide-hide-hide-hideaway”

A Hive chair, suspended in the air, hanging off a chain, a wall in the background, stark with paint cracking and peeling off, the floor, imaculate white and smooth.

Aesthetics

The aesthetics of the Hive are striking. More than just a chair, its structure forms an architectural space, as though a room within a room. It is the perfect, comfortable safe haven to curl up in and find a little peace and quiet.

A Hive quite some distance in the air, hoisted in the air by a crane, within the confines of a high-ceilinged warehouse

“When you sit in it you have a framed view through the round opening but feel hidden as well – almost like putting on Harry Potter’s cloak. People refer to it as feeling quite womb like, a statement that always fascinates me.”
