As humans, we find great satisfaction in all things related to nature, as do designers who see the natural world as a source of inspiration to design objects and build structures. "Nature as model" has influenced the most diverse possible concepts and developmental processes, from simple repetitive patterns to complex innovative works.
"Nature Design", an exhibition at the Museum für Gestaltung in Zürich, Switzerland, showcases a diverse selection of objects and architecture inspired by nature. The references to nature can either be translated in a literal manner to design, or contain an iterative representation. The innate and enduring human connection to nature and the advent of digital design has beckoned a whole new relationship between nature and design. Participating artists include Werner Aisslinger, Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, Peter Eisenman, Zaha Hadid, Herzog and de Meuron, Ross Lovegrove, Olaf Nicolai, Francois Roche, Lars Spuybroek, and GA1/4nther Vogt, among others.
The exhibition posters intend to reveal the diversity of connections that we make to nature and seek to show the correlation between the natural and the designed.
