We are grateful you are here

Trying to find an experimental hive design I saw a while back. My search terms aren’t working.

We had a discussion about alternate hive types today at my club meeting. I wanted to talk/ask about an experimental hive I saw, but no one was familiar with it and my search terms aren't coming up with anything.

The body of the hive is round-ish; it's hexagonal or octagonal to mimic a tree hollow. It sits on top of a post in the ground at an angle, like a tree that had fallen over and is resting diagonally. The top opens like a top bar hive, and the frames are top bars that you add from the top down, simulating the bees starting their comb at the top and working down. The frame top bars look like a set of steps.

Has anyone else seen this? I saw it on a youtube video and can't find it.
