Biomimicry - 

Design inspired by nature

Watch this webinar and learn about biomimicry – design inspired by nature.

 

Click the video player to watch the webinar and learn how biomimicry applies insights gained from natural ecosystems as a source of ideas for innovative lighting design.

The biological process of natural selection is actually a series of trial-and-error experiments in which organisms evolve to have the form and function best suited for survival in their habitat. And as resources are scarce, nature tends to favor organisms that are very efficient. We can optimize our lighting designs by learning from this ongoing natural experiment: biomimicry.

 

In technology and process management, biomimicry draws inspiration from nature to develop innovative solutions that use resources much more efficiently. In the fields of architecture and lighting design, this represents a new paradigm as it goes beyond “sustainable design” towards regenerative design that involves optimizing positives.

 

In ‘Biomimicry: design inspired by nature’ you will discover how light is gathered, focused and distributed in biology, how biological algorithms can help us solve complex design problems, and how this novel approach can help us move towards truly regenerative lighting designs.
