BEE ANYWHERE / soft beehive

BEE ANYWHERE
BEE ANYWHERE

BEE ANYWHERE is a flexible blanket-like bee lodging. According to the United Nations Environment Programme, it has been stated that 1/3 of the global crops are pollinated by bees. If the bees were to disappear, it will directly affect the food chain thus causing serious consequences. It’s can adapt its shape to the natural environment for convenient laying and restoration. This design can be placed in different environments to reduce the time required by bees to build nests. In a relatively dry or harsh environment, it becomes a lodging station and it can also be used by people for temporary bee farming to take honey to local children.
