Hive | Design Studio Furniture cuffaro 2009

The hive workstation is a piece of furniture intended for students, artists or designers working in a studio environment, specifically in the new facilities at The Cleveland Institute of Art. It combines a work surface with a display or privacy wall into a single easy to move unit. When used in multiples it is designed to enable many studio configurations. The aesthetic contrasts the cold materials and rectilinear nature of the building design. It is designed to be locally manufactured from materials harvested from locally deconstructed buildings.
