Sayuti, Nurul 'Ayn Ahmad, Sommer, Bjorn and Ahmed-Kristensen, Saeema, 2020, Journal Article, Identifying the purposes of biological materials in everyday designs Environment-Behaviour Proceedings Journal, 5 (15). pp. 29-37. ISSN 2398-4287

Abstract or Description:

The exploration of new materials has provided new insights into the progressive use of living biological materials in everyday designs. Living biological materials are expected to have the potential to overcome the depletion of non-renewable resources. Through bio-design and biophilic design in the urban environment, designers apply living systems as appropriate solutions to everyday designs. This paper aims to classify the biological materials and the sense of ownership towards biological materials embedded in products in terms of a) Function, b) Aesthetic and Semantic, and c) Emotion and Experience. A survey was conducted from 173 respondents through an online questionnaire.
