HIVE's designer and creative director Monika Piatkowski, creates interior products that are at the same time contemporary and minimal but playful and contemplative. HIVE is a London based award winning studio design studio specialising in furniture, lighting, interior accessories and design. The work of the studio combines the production of commissioned projects in both interior and product design as well as design and manufacture of their own range of HIVE label products .
There are a number of keys strands that run through the work of the HIVE studio. At its heart, the studio is a place of collaboration where influences from art, design, architecture and decoration merge. This blend has created a design style that is graphic, painterly and expressive whilst retaining the functional and structural rigidity often seen in architecture.
Monika cites a preference for using raw and natural material such as steel, wood, leather and felt.
All of HIVE products are manufactured in the UK. We work closely with local crafsmen and manufactureres to develop products of quality and style. HIVE works from their purpose built South London studio.
