Designboom explores the discipline of 'biomimicry', which takes its name from the greek words ‘bios’, meaning life and ‘mimesis’, meaning to imitate. as its name might suggest, biomimicry involves the study of nature’s designs and mimicking them to solve human challenges. janine benyus, one of biomimicry’s pioneers defines it as, ‘innovation inspired by nature.’ while this new field may seem very scientific, it is of great use and importance to today’s designers.
