The use of animals by humans is always accompanied by the use of technology and tools. They domesticate the animal and make it useful. This study initially considered the market of animal husbandry and architecture, finding apiculture as a potential area for innovative design developments. In collaboration with a professional beekeeper several tests in bee colonies for a new geometry of honeycombs were arranged and estimated. Finally, a concept was developed, which can be used in the apiculture hobby. It embodies a new form of honey production and beekeeping.
