Must-Have Biomimicry Toolkit in German — free download
Introducing the “Biomimicry Design Lens” in German
Some of you might be designers and have heard of Biomimicry through word of mouth. However, most of you probably don’t think of yourself as designers, and don’t know how the Biomimicry Design Lens could be useful for you. The Design Lens is a versatile tool for people working in all fields and at all levels, who want to bring Biomimicry into action. We use the term “designer” to mean a person who is responsible for creating and implementing a process, idea, service or product at any level, in any field. Together with our sister agency phi360 we translated Biomimicry 3.8’s design guide that helps you integrate Biomimicry principles into your work.
This toolkit is a “collection of diagrams that visually represent the foundations of our design approach and include the core components of the method: Essential Elements, Life’s Principles, and Biomimicry Thinking.¹” It is used around the world in different projects by professional Biomimics to check the quality and sustainability of their ideas, products, and services.
Who is the Biomimicry Toolkit for?
We teamed up with phi360 to offer this German translation of Biomimicry 3.8’s toolkit to a wider audience. It is intended for both professional Biomimics and Biomimicry enthusiasts that feel more comfortable learning about the methods in German.
How to use the Biomimicry Toolkit?
This toolkit is a simplified collection of more advanced Biomimicry practices, so it might require some training to understand and master what each component represents. Depending on your background and familiarity, some exercises might be easier than others. But if you have questions or need further guidance, we would be very happy to help out and get to know you — drop by our regular events which we announce on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and our newsletter).
If you’re after more advanced guidance to integrate the Design Lens into your work, we can recommend trainings and workshops, either through us at Biomimicry Germany, or through Biomimicry 3.8 and phi360.
