The Hexa-Hive abandons the cubic box design of “modern hives” to replace it with units of hexagonal bodies. But, apart from bee housing, the Hexa-Hive can serve as outdoor furniture – as seat or bench. The design of the Hexa-Hive gives an alternative to bee-keeping in urban surroundings and invites interested visitors to come close and experience these valuable and special animals.
In Otaniemi, we installed 9 sitting Hexa-Hives and 5 for bees. Currently 3 of them are populated with bees. The Hexa-Hive village is located at Ossinlampi, at the site where the new campus garden will grow.
You are welcome to visit the Hexa-Hive village, explore the bees’ activity and use the seats!
