The concept for ‘BuzziHives’ by Alain Gilles for Belgian brand Buzzipsace, is a sheet, a protective sheet, wrapped around two seats to create a space in which two people can conduct instant meetings.

“It follows the work logic of today, where people need to have instant meeting sessions…” says designer Gilles. “… they could just take two seats, but in this case, they get an extra protective wall around them for a more quiet and peaceful conversation. The buzziHives are little cells that remain open and welcoming and that can be used as a stand-alone pieces or in groups where they truly reveal their personalities and create this impression of a little ‘hive’.”

The walls serve as sound insulation and resemble a partly open door. “The BuzziHive are always partly open, but because of the movement generated by their outer shell, they can be seen as an invitation for people to come in.” The cells can come with or without a roof, depending on the need and general noise characteristics of a specific area.

“Once seated people can fold down a little tablet in order to conveniently share information. Because of the folded down tablet system the overall external size of the BuzziHive is reduced.”
