Through the course of evolution nature has

developed and constantly optimized its strategies

and systems thus establishing its own

logics for best design and performance of its

organisms that are around for much longer

than humans are. Therefore, not surprisingly,

nature has been a constant source of inspiration

and reference in the design of the human

environment, serving as a model, metaphor or

as a material for designers, architects, artists

and engineers.

The »model of nature« with its structures and

organising principles, does not only inspire

the widest range of concepts and design processes,

but can also be expressed in a broad

spectrum of forms, functions and textures.

We can interpret nature's lessons on several

levels to produce meaningful design. We

can read it literally, thus focusing on its

efficient use of materials and energy, its

self-organising and self-sustaining principles,

its diverse but symbiotic ecosystems

or certain mechanisms for translation into

new materials, products or systems. Nature

can also be interpreted more metaphorically

thus serving as a reference point for designs

and systems that endorse values such

as lightness, balance, flexibility, participation,

playfulness or a sense of wonder. Or

we can study the physicality and aesthetics

of nature's materials, structures and forms,

exploring their sensory qualities.

During the project »BIO.logics – Learning

from Nature« students did not simply depict

or imitate nature but used it as a starting

point and reservoir of inspiration to explore

the relationship between man and his environment.

They studied the structures, principles

and »technology« of biology as well as

approaches to biomimetic design in order to

learn from nature in their studio practice

work. Within the context of textile and surface

design, by investigating strategies and

mechanisms observed in nature, they conceptualized

and developed new materials, surfaces,

systems, models, processes or objects.
