The Beehive Chair

We do like the unusual furniture and time being precious, we have decided to do a short and sweet article because it is also the time of the year to prepare New Year’s Eve celebrations.

No time to waste.

The Beehive Chair is the product in question – Graham Roebeck is an architectural designer based in New Zealand and is the brain behind this creation.

… Exploring the theme of today’s highly portable art and media –interpreted through the analogy of sculpture as frozen music- the form is that of a non portable guitar pick and a gourd that are rendered immovable. Frozen. Queenstown  architectural designer Graham Roebeck’s  Beehive was judged the winner of the inaugural 2011 Formica Formations competition, by the Laminex Group and was realised by acclaimed designer David Trubridge. Constructed from Lakepine Zero low emitting MDF, Beehive has beeswax polish to the edges, and uses Warm White Formica high pressure laminate to the vertical faces…

Surprisingly, this chair is made of Formica – the material which was all around in the 70s.

Graham declared: “I drew inspiration from a number of objects including a guitar pick, egg and water gourd.”
