Symbio: Design project that bonds technology & nature

Feb 06, 2018, 7:20 AM EST

The comfort of modern infrastructure need not necessarily come at the expense of nature and its valuable resources – that’s the idea behind Israeli student, Yarden Mor’s design project called “Symbio.”

Mor uses Fused Deposition Modeling technology to craft environment-friendly design solutions on existing natural foundations such as trees and rocks, writes Design Boom. The artist believes that future advances would allow printing installations directly onto natural objects.

Mor says this “nature and tech hybrid” approach provides protection to nature, which in the process rewards us back with its aesthetics both in form and function.
