Photosynthesis Mimicry

The process of photosynthesis is embraced in homeware & design categories

Trend - As a biological process, photosynthesis is crucial for the maintenance of life on Earth. Many brands and designers are mimicking its stages, in a bid to produce products that are closer to nature, as well as vastly effective and purifying for the immediate environment.

Insight - The shift to wellness is partly motivated by the development and population growth in busy urban centers. Consumers look for references to organics in everyday products, as nature is an inherent component of sustaining health and wellness as they balance work and leisure. The adoption of photosynthesis in design ties into the urban consumers' desire to reconnect to nature.
Workshop Question - How can the process of photosynthesis be interpreted in the products of your brand?
