Nature is full of shapes that are in harmony with the environment and can evoke positive feelings in humans. For example, the Fibonacci sequence or Golden Ratio, a pattern found in many natural forms such as shells, flowers, and leaves, has been known to create a sense of balance and harmony in art and design.

Studies have shown that exposure to natural patterns and shapes can have a positive impact on human well-being. Furthermore, nature-inspired art and design can create a connection between humans and the environment, promoting a sense of belonging and responsibility towards nature - by incorporating them into our surroundings we can create a more sustainable and harmonious relationship with the world around us.

Those natural shapes are called Biomorphic designs.

Isamu Noguchi and Sonja Ferlov Mancoba were pioneer artists in developing the Biomorphism Art Movement. Biomorphism models artistic design elements on naturally occurring patterns or shapes reminiscent of nature and living organisms.






 

How do they channel energy?

The patterns in nature are constantly changing, but they also flow together seamlessly. This is what gives biomorphic designs their vitality. We see them everywhere—in the shapes of clouds and leaves, in the ripples on a pond, and in the waves of an ocean. These patterns can be found all over our planet's surface: they're in our architecture; they're even in our language.


Derived from the Greek words bios (life) and morphe (form), the term refers to abstract forms or images that evoke naturally occurring forms such as plants, organisms, and body parts. Biomorphic designs also appear throughout art history — from ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics to modern abstract paintings. These artists were not trying to copy nature; instead, they were trying to capture its essence.


People love patterns. Our brains recognize and resonate with geometric designs in the world around us. Our eyes look for naturally repeating patterns, called fractals, we do this without even realizing it.
