About the project

"Our project is a digital beehive growing from the wooden trunk, a porous and three-dimensional lattice inspired by Louis Vuitton's famous monogram. The hive is made of 3D printed modules. We are using PLA bioplastics, a biodegradable material created from fermented sugarcanes. From digital craft to circular and modular design, The Hive celebrates Louis Vuitton's innovative spirit yet addresses our common future challenges."
