Urban Beehive

The reddot award winning Urban Beehive from Philips Design shows us that ant farms are obsolete and we should be gunning our attention on bees. The Urb is in line with the concept and makes beekeeping a ‘less daunting and more attractive process for novices.’ The biggest advantage is that you don’t need to adorn the protective garb when you handle the bin. You can observe the colony and use the technology implements to extract the honey easily.

This hasn’t been explained clearly, but I am sure there must be a process in place to do it right. In any case this beehive is ideal for home gardens and community parks.
