Nature has always inspired innovation and benefited civilisations since the beginning of time. Humankind has observed nature and learned to apply the principles of natural phenomena. Since the mid-1970s, the Science of Biomimicry (Design Paradigm) Studies has invoked interest among inventors and designers to examine Nature’s Paradigm, its models, systems, and processes. People learned to take inspiration from nature and solve problems in various fields of design. Thus, nature became one of the most inspiring domains to invent new solutions through design.
