“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.
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.”
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.
