Company Designs ‘Urban Beehive’ for Your Home. What Could Go Wrong?


Honey doesn’t get fresher than this, people. The Phillips’ Microbial Home project designed an Urban Beehive as a means to boost and encourage sustainability in modern homes. One could even collect fresh honey whenever they wanted à la Winnie the Pooh, only without getting their head stuck.

The hive was developed as a means to solve the issue of bee preservation and the decline of bee colonies. Featuring a flower pot that’s located on the opposite side of the design, the flowers and the honeycomb attract bees towards the hive allowing the bees to enter through a specifically designed passage. At the base, there’s a smoke actuator that calms the bees down so you can collect the honey.

Sounds pretty safe, right? Because absolutely nothing can go wrong with keeping live bees in your kitchen.
