Iron Hive


Organize, organically, like a beehive

Structured like a beehive, Iron Hive is
a modular shelf system that allows users
to organise in an organic way.

The project inspiration comes from repetitive geometrical elements that simulate the optical effect and complex polygonal shapes of a beehive structure, as well as that of other natural elements like atoms, cells or crystals. The intention is to create a modular system that recalls each of these elements in their strongest properties – the solidity and lightness of a beehive, the splitting and flexibility of atoms, and reproducibility of cells. The result is a piece of furniture that is organic and structured, delicate and strong, all at the same time.

The Module (the cell)

The Iron Hiveseries is composed of individual modules (dimensions are 330 x 330 x 330 mm) that allow the user to classify, store and “grow” the storage solution as required.

Sideboard

With the support of a simple wooden base, the modules also function well as seats or side tables. When the modules are combined, they can form a bookshelf, a sideboard or any furniture that one fancies.

BOOKSHELF

The Iron Hivebookshelf is lightness and stability at its best. It has a polished iron or powder coated finish, which makes its outlook elemental, organic or solemn.

The cells are interconnected by small, but powerful magnets, which do not interfere with the purity of the form. This also allows for easy assembly even by the unskilled of hands.
