Hive traces its origin back in 2001 when a group of friends acted upon a vision of producing exceptional lighting and interior accessories. Under the creative direction of Kenneth Cobonpue and management skills of Celso Advincula Jr, Hive has developed into a design and manufacturing facility where various artists can create objects for production under the one roof. The duo continuously complement one another, allowing HIVE to become a seamless collaboration of design excellence and innovative manufacturing. Building on a promise of functional items founded by innovative design, Hive cultivates an environment of creative freedom. 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. At Hive, intelligence is made visible through design.
