Hive traces its origin back to 2001 when they developed into a design and manufacturing facility where various artists can create objects for production under one roof. Building on a promise of functional items founded by innovative design, Hive cultivates an environment of creative freedom through the strong sense of aesthetic.

Hive has found its niche by garnering most form or material inspiration from nature and fusing it with a deep respect for handmade production techniques. A deeper identity is found through the use of locally-sourced, self-sustaining organic materials such as rattan or abaca, with traditional processes creating innovative modern design. The preservation of traditional hand-working methods allows Hive to perpetuate a component of culture for future generations.
