Building on a promise of functional items founded by innovative design, Hive cultivates an environment of creative freedom coupled with a strong sense of aesthetic discipline.
Hive is a habitat for designers and artisans that allows its dwellers to create a variety of original forms, textures, and ideas in clever and invigorating expressions.
Hive has found its niche by garnering most form or material inspiration from nature and fusing it with a deep respect for handmade production techniques. A deeper identity is found through the use of locally-sourced, self-sustaining organic materials such as rattan or abaca, with traditional processes creating innovative modern design.
The preservation of traditional hand-working methods allows Hive to perpetuate component of culture for future generations.
Hive is a collective of designers and artisans under the art direction of Kenneth Cobonpue.
It traces its origin back to 2001 when a group of friends acted upon a vision of producing exceptional lighting and interior accessories. Hive then developed into a design and manufacturing facility where various artists could create objects for production under one roof.
From then on, the visionary design house has resonated with busy occupants working incessantly, producing a growing collection of lighting and living accessories both stunning and versatile.
