The Urban Beehive hopes to provide a home solution for the lowering number of bees produced in the past few years. As part of the Microbial Home design recently unveiled by Dutch electronic company Philips, the Urban Beehive essentially brings the hive into the home.

Embracing the eco-friendly element so prevalent in the Microbial Home, the Urban Beehive is set in an open window, allowing the flower pot to rest outside, and the glass shell housing the honeycomb frame to rest inside. Since many city dwellers have begun to practice beekeeping in order to help the colonies, the Urban Beehive offers a stylish and convenient way to do just that.
