Abstract

The aesthetic NORMs have formed some presupposes in designers’ minds which don’t let their eyes see the reality of forms in NATURE before their abstracting mind see. They usually reduce complex forms to their basic geometries and proportions, in order to find orders in their complexity and to harmonize them with their design paradigms. We believe that this common vision to the nature, deprive us from perceiving its reality. This paper proposes a new vision to the nature and thereby present nature’s approach to the form issue, and some of its manifestations. These findings which are presented under the title of DESIGN NATURALLY would guide designers, one step closer to the complex reality of forms in nature to get inspired by. Our point here is that this approach takes us far beyond the law-bound principles of the geometry and traditional design aesthetics and would create a new aesthetic language to the world of products based on the real complex world.

Design Naturally, Dealing with Complexity of Forms in Nature & Applying it in Product Design

The aesthetic NORMs have formed some presupposes in designers’ minds which don’t let their eyes see the reality of forms in NATURE before their abstracting mind see. They usually reduce complex forms to their basic geometries and proportions, in order to find orders in their complexity and to harmonize them with their design paradigms. We believe that this common vision to the nature, deprive us from perceiving its reality. This paper proposes a new vision to the nature and thereby present nature’s approach to the form issue, and some of its manifestations. These findings which are presented under the title of DESIGN NATURALLY would guide designers, one step closer to the complex reality of forms in nature to get inspired by. Our point here is that this approach takes us far beyond the law-bound principles of the geometry and traditional design aesthetics and would create a new aesthetic language to the world of products based on the real complex world.
