A Study on Natural Bionics in Product Design
Bionic design is the inexhaustible source for innovative design. This paper focuses on how humans are inspired by plants and animals in the nature and apply bionic thinking to innovative design of industrial products. It will expound bionics in view of structure, texture, natural form as well as color and advocate the marriage of social production activities and the nature when designers, abiding by the bionic design philosophy of “learning from the nature”, establish a platform where human, product design and the nature are in harmony while endowing products with a sense of liveliness via bionic designs, bringing design back to the nature and enhancing the integration of human and nature.
