Vimeo of the Week: HK Honey

Nokia – HK Honey from The Silentlights on Vimeo.

The above film, HK HONEY, is about the organization of the same name. HK Honey is a group of beekeepers and designers who intend to illustrate the need for bees within our worlds. The thought of bees and designers living together, at first, is an odd one. However, after watching this great video, it’s not much of a stretch at all. A fascinating film. More info:

Hong Kong is home to more than 7 million people. Amongst the high rise apartments, product designer Michael Leung, founder of HK Honey, has created his own space bringing nature back into the metropolis one box at a time.

HK Honey is an organisation of Hong Kong beekeepers, artists & designers who aim to communicate the value of bees to the human food chain & the benefits of locally produced honey. With a network of bee farms and a design studio, Michael and HK Honey harvest local honey & design products and services relating to urban beekeeping.
