In designing the Hive collection of breakout furniture, the aim was to create a multi-use collection of elements which can be added, taken away, expanded or regrouped. Inspiration was drawn from the natural structure of a beehive.
Each member of the hive is integral and forms part of the collective, they also need to leave the hive at times to explore and collect resources. Other members come and take their place and when they return they once again become part of the collective.
This is the idea behind Hive; Components can be removed, added, rearranged and grouped to form smaller hives or individual units. The hexagonal tables act as the central hub of the system and by their design, they naturally encourage collaboration. The design of the system also facilitates in minimising the footprint used and re-purposing the floor area for different uses.
From a user point of view, our Hive collection is highly adaptive. With veneered tables and upholstered ottomans in any fabric, vinyl or leather; almost limitless configurations can be achieved. Collaborate or socialise in teams or take an ottoman and table for yourself.
This is the perfect solution for waiting areas, casual breakout areas, cafés, and educational shared spaces.
