While bees are fighting for their existence, scientists, artists and more are trying to do their part to make the fight easier; the Urban Beehive by Rowan Dunford, a designer based in Auckland, New Zealand, is one of the latest creations to help propagate the bee population.
As its name suggests, the Urban Beehive by Rowan Dunford is a modernized version of the basic apiaries existing today. Aesthetically pleasing with bright colors and a cleaner silhouette, Dunford hopes to dispel the fear surrounding these insects while encouraging the average person to start up their own colony. Made with the beginner in mind, it reduces the cost and complexity often surrounding such endeavors.
More than that, the Urban Beehive by Rowan Dunford is easy to assemble and is shipped flatpacked for environmental reasons.
