Chris Ferebee has taken a conceptualized approach to functional forms in furniture design. When the three “Hive” modular units are stacked, they achieve a complexity derived from its minimal aesthetic. The result is a work with naturalistic intricacy and purity of fluid form without challenge by decoration.
Designed in 1999, the innovative modular “Hive” shelving unit was recognized with a Good Design Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design in 2000 and received a Design Distinction Award from International Design Magazine in 2001. This protoype was made in a flawed attempt to mass-produce the "Hive," which did not meet the artist's requirements, and therefore only ten examples of this form were executed. Later editions, entitled “Hive.H2,” are produced by Gubi International.
