About this project
Hello Kickstarter Community! We need Your help to create the future of modular shelving.
By the year 2050, an estimated 80% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. This means that traditional shelving systems, which are bulky and immobile, will no longer suffice for such environments.
It's time for a solution to this static and poorly designed furniture.
We've designed Hexacomb to be just that:
We believe products that are processed less are better for both you and the environment. That's why Hexacomb and Hexacomb Mini are made from 100% all natural materials, which means that every part of their unique design is created using only harvested resources like wood and neodymium. In addition, Hexacomb is only jointed with all natural adhesives, so we assure no harmful chemicals are used in the making. The natural ingredients found in Hexacomb are also biodegradable. At the end of your products life the materials can safely rejoin the earth, hopefully to be utilized once again in the future.
Healthy ecosystems and environments are essential to the survival of humans and other organisms. The honeybee is perhaps one of the most important and influential species on the sustenance of life as we know it. This small insect species is responsible for pollinating crops, producing beneficial honey and other medicinal food substances, and most importantly for sustaining the world's natural life cycle.
Unfortunately, the very existence of this beneficial creature is being threatened by the perpetuation of industrial agriculture and an excessive use of toxic pesticides, which have contributed to the massive die-off phenomenon known as Colony Collapse Disorder. To help find a solution to this growing problem, Hexacomb has proudly joined the World Wildlife Fund because we can't picture a world without bees.
Hexacomb is comprised of a solid oak wood frame that is masterfully constructed with age-old jointing techniques. Each "cell" is handcrafted with precision machinery by expert artisans who inspect and assure the quality of their work from start to finish.
Why do we need your support? Hexacomb is full of potential. In order to share this product's benefits with the rest of the world, we need to acquire necessary tooling and supplies to get it there. We are dedicated to the quality of our work and will continue to maintain this standard even as we upscale.

Risks and challenges
We have taken every precaution necessary to make sure our units meet strict quality standards as well as yours. That is why Hexacomb is made from 100% all natural material and handcrafted by expert artisans. We anticipate a production timeline of about 10 weeks after reaching our goal, and then a shipping timeline of 6 weeks, which includes preparing the shipments at our fulfillment house in New Jersey. From there, we will rely on FedEx to ship our products domestically as well as around the world.
We are confident in our allotted timing, as we have managed out the unknowns to the best of our abilities. As a valued benefactor of our product, we will communicate with you throughout the entire process so that you know exactly when to expect your shipment.
Please be aware that backers from outside The United States can be charged extra for customs, duties and taxes by the courier that delivers your Hexacomb Units.
