RedBean can be integrated in various PHP MVC frameworks. If you are looking for a framework that ships with an integrated version of RedBeanPHP I recommend to take a look at Shozu. Besides Shozu, RedBeanPHP is known to integrate well in Zend Framework, Kohana PHP Framework, CodeIgniter and many more popular frameworks.

Shozu Framework

While RedBean is a stand-alone library you can get RedBean integrated in an MVC framework as well. The Shozu framework comes with out-of-the-box RedBeanPHP support. Shozu is a very smart and lightweight framework for rapid application development on the PHP platform. Some of the inspiration for Shozu comes from the well known 'green framework'. Shozu is also the first framework that has adopted RedBeanPHP for ORM. It's a framework worth considering!
