Looking for that perfect nook to curl up with a book? Check out Raw Studio's hanging Hive, a flat-pack chair that offers the ultimate in comfortable seating. Built like a room within a room, this cozy timber seat features a layered hoop frame for both indoor and outdoor use. The Hive can also be collapsed into a flat shape for easy shipping and storage.
Inhabitat got the chance to try out the incredibly comfy Hive chair at ICFF 2014, where Raw Studio showcased some of their creative and charming products (including the moon-shaped Luna Light). The award-winning, UK-based studio strives to manufacture its products locally and to minimize its ecological footprint whenever possible. With a penchant for fun flat-pack furniture, Raw Studio has created an entire line of different cocoon-like hanging chairs.
Equipped with a dark blue or sage green cushion, the Hive chair is wide enough to comfortably fit one or two people. The big ring opening makes it easy to hoist yourself in and out of the comfy cocoon space. Rows of lights embedded into the timber rings illuminate the Hive chair at night.
