b.suite / b.suite


b.suite is an ergonomical, nature-inspired and biological hive, that enables species-appropriate beekeeping. It can be used as a shared hive in urban areas freely accessible at places such as parks, roof terraces or in gardens. The beehives can belong to sponsors such as cities, hotels or student homes. Beekeepers can access the beehives with the b.link app to monitor hives, collaborate and exchange with other users and get helpful hints to make their work easier. Pollination of crops, environmental conservation or honey returns are motivations to participate. This way, both owners and users of the beehive benefit from the shared system.
