Philips’ Urban Beehive

A slightly bizarre yet utterly captivating idea from Philips – indoor bee keeping! Imagine the horror, you’re out of the gold stuff. Toast, tea and cereal remains unsweetened. This concept puts an end to all of that! Whilst shoving your hand into a hive of pollinating bees may not sound like everyone’s idea of fun, this is a rather accurate representation of a natural beehive, where they even leave the pod to find flowers ripe for picking (it just so happens they’re built-in). The bees can enter and leave as they wish, never bothering the occupants of the home through the use of indoor/outdoor seperation. With more and more people paying attention to where they source their food, and how it’s produced, what better way than to begin farming within your own home.
