Organic Design by Domus

beauty comes from the structure and inner purpose, and it has
captivated and inspired architects, engineers, craftsmen and designers
since the beginning of their existence. The study and application of the
norms and forms of nature has been bundled under the label of "organic
design", a broad term that embraces such diverse examples as Art
Nouveau, some examples of robotics, the architectural manifestation of
the ideal domestic lifestyle after World War II, and biomimetic objects
produced according to sustainability principles."
