Biomimicry for Innovation: Good for Business & Good for the Planet
Designers frequently overlook their greatest opportunities for innovation. They exist all around us—in the sky, in the water, beneath our feet. Life contains many of the missing pieces needed to inspire boundary-breaking design.
Biomimicry—an emerging field that studies how to adapt and employ the successful forms, processes and blueprints of biological systems—contains the keys to unlocking that innovation. Elegant solutions have been evolving throughout 3.8 billion years of research and development (R&D)—if we just learn to ask the right questions and listen to the answers.
Seth GaleWyrick of Bresslergroup will outline basic concepts of biomimicry and show how, combined with innovation principles rooted in ID, the approach solves complex design challenges and produces successful products.
