Coral Lamp: Biomimicry in Design

Coral Lamp: Biomimicry in Design
Dave Pinter, PSFK

Since we heard Graham Hill talk about biomimicry recently at the NY PSFK Conference, we’ve been looking for more examples of nature inspired design. The Coral lamp by Studio Aisslinger is constructed of individual hexagonal felt cells. These are attached together and the lamp’s shape grows much like coral or a honeycomb. Particularly nice is that the flexibility of the felt material makes each of the cells distort to become unique in shape and more natural looking.

Studio Aisslinger have also made a floor cushion based on the same construction method. Both were shown this week at the Milan Furniture Fair.
