Band Together: Introducing… Hive

Posted ago by Nathaniel

Throw out those annoying rubber bands and hefty plastic boxes, Quirky’s Hive is a fun, modular way to keep your favorite art supplies contained, compact, and ready for sketching. It holds up to 19 of your favorite pens or pencils at one time, and provides a beautiful table-top organizer that also keeps your wares contained while on the go. Unroll and lay Hive flat while you work, and when finished, simply roll it up, secure the magnetic closure, and be on your way. Hive is great for the office, school, home, and anywhere in between.

Inventor Randy Stein wanted a better way to contain his pens and pencils than the age-old rubber bands we’re all accustomed to. He developed a honeycomb-shaped organizer that could accommodate various writing implement, and submitted his idea to Quirky. In virtually no time at all, Quirky staff snatched up this brilliantly simple solution, and after 317 influencers helped develop it, Hive was born.

I love this, however, due to the simplicity of the manufacturing, I am hoping they do offer this is the White, Grey, Black color scheme as well. The multiple colors of the colored pencils would just "pop" in a Black or White hive.

Can't wait for this to come out...so need this for my markers. I hope they come out with adjustable holes (or bigger holes) for those markers/pens that are not the standard sizes.
