The ‘Sky Hive’ is a device for beekeeping in public spaces. The aim is to promote bees and beekeepers by making their important work visual in public, urban areas. A prototype was placed in the Sphinxpark in Maastricht. The new version, the Sky Hive Solar, has an electric lifting system running on solar energy.
The Bee Collective is a cooperation of beekeepers and designers searching for new ways to stimulate and enable beekeeping in a contemporary living environment. The collective works for a broader understanding of the function and functioning of bees, brings together next generation beekeepers in a network and invites people to become a beekeeper.
