Nature Inspired Design

a practical guide towards positive impact products

In the Nature Inspired Design project, we learned from ten Dutch companies at the forefront of Biomimicry, cradle to cradle and design for the circular economy – which we shall from now on jointly call “Nature Inspired Design”. How to translate inspiring design principles into tangible results – and not just into a conceptual product with no actual follow-through? Which disciplines do you need and how can they work together? In short: how can you widen the scope without losing the plot? 

We researched what works for our pioneering companies, and boiled down their best practices into one comprehensive method with carefully selected tools for designers, available to you in the form of this book.
