DESIGN: URBAN BEEHIVE

URBAN BEEHIVE 2

Honey is a wonderful gift from nature. Not only does it provide a sweet compliment to teas and desserts, but it can also offer a variety of health benefits. As we all know, honey comes from bees. And thanks to Dutch electronics company Philips, you can now have your own bee colony right at home. The Urban Beehive is a large glass vessel that contains honeycomb frames, with an entry passageway for bees to enter and exit through. Honeybees can use the frames to build cells, and the hive can be easily opened for harvesting honey. The unit attaches to any wall or window, and provides a great view for watching the honey as it’s being made. The Urban Beehive also seeks to address the issue of preserving the honeybee species, as it provides a safe, and quite modern, home for them.
