The HIVE Sofa is a complex design that no one will be indifferent to. Is the result of a constant need for creation supported by everything we do just looking around the Tree. It is a premise and a challenge when designing. Nature constantly provides us with shapes and colours capable of awakening us to its application in objects and products every day. It was referring to the way bees build their hives and the strength that this same structure has that the idea of a sofa started to be designed inside my head and then finally, materialized.
