François Bernard’s Trends Space on Maison & Objet January 2015 put forward the nature in the making…
Life scientists, artists and designers summon the spirit of Mother Nature and dabble in her laws with rather sorcerer-like rituals. Letting chance, experiments and mutations made by these bio-magicians catalyse wondrous things. Thus are born fascinating creations that herald a new generation of objects.
Observing natural phenomena sustains the quest for knowledge and beauty. It leads scientists and designers towards a common experimentation platform. Their work anticipates approaches to manufacturing that mimic or utilise the ways living things develop, to recreate their fascinating magic and spontaneous mutations.

Alongside these empirical approaches are appearing new families of objects. They use organic properties and compose with time, to satisfy our need for contemplation and enchantment.
