Biomimicry is the art of finding inspiration in nature and imitating is design to find use in you daily life. Art of biomimicry might seem simple, but it is hard to copy the best features of evolution; let alone replicate them perfectly. Yet, when it comes to design and décor world, we are talking of ‘imitation’ that is far less daunting, a lot more visual than functional and something that is as quirky as it is imaginative.
