Silkworm Contemporary
Designers are taking note of silkworm techniques when developing concepts
Trend - Furniture and artworks are inspired by silkworm techniques, as creatives take note of the intricate process and its implications for design. To form the net that holds it, the silkworm swings itself from side to side in a figure 8 pattern, distributing the saliva that becomes solidified silk once it contacts air. Whether it be through the direct utilization of the material or simply through mimicking the delicate building technique of silkworms, the end design product embraces a unique and ethereal quality.
Workshop Question - What can inspire your product or service to be more authentic in its design?
