Biomimetic Materials

🍃 Nature has long been humanity’s key source of inspiration for innovation. Structural colour in butterfly wings inspires LED pixels; the ridges on humpback whales inspire the shape of wind turbine blades, and bullet trains mimic the beaks of kingfishers.

🌎 As 2030 draws near, biomimicry offers solutions to global challenges in the wake of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. With nature’s proven solutions, biomimicry is the bridge between biology and design. Biomimicking materials are supercharging nature-inspired strategies to help tackle core areas such as food waste, sanitation, construction, fabrics, and more.
