Designed by Tom Back, the "Thrive Hive" was created by a student of Kingston University in London. The hive is based on the top-star style, and uses traditional weaving techniques to provide for better protection and insulation during cold winters.

Back's design is not yet made available commercially, but will be exhibited at Tent London from September 22 to 25.
