Thrive Hive

Don't worry, bee happy

Looking not unlike a scarecrow’s piano and making its debut at London’s New Designers, it’s fair to say there’s a buzz around Tom Back’s Thrive Hive. By trade a design student rather than a bee-keeper, Back put his considerable carpentry skills to use in producing the perfect hive for city-dwelling, urban types.

Combining a traditional skep beehive with the practicality of a top-bar, the well-insulated Thrive Hive puts fit before function; openly prioritising space over maximum honey production. With adjustable and removable legs meaning the hive can be used by even the littlest bee-fan, the Thrive Hive offers everyone a taste of the good life.
