The BIO NANO SCOPE BOX is a box with six enlarged 3D printed natural nano structures. The box is lasercut and laserengraved so we avoid any pollution by ink. The box can be printed and cut on locations all over the world. This so we reduce carbon emissions by avoiding shipping or aircargo.
Each nano structure is linked to a card. On this card you can find:
- Information about the organism that is the inspiration
- the characteristics and function of the nano structure
- A Scanning Electron Microscope-image(SEM-image) of the nano structure
- A product that has been developped using the natural nanostructure as inspiration
- And an explanation why the new material is sustainable
Bio^mi is a collaboration of two architects; Nadia & Lydia. In 2019 they received a grant from Cultuur Eindhoven to do research on biological nano structures to develop sustainable materials for the future. One of the results is this Bio Nano Scope Box they developped to inspire designers, engineers, researchers and business to learn form nature's 3.8 billion years of experience in R&D.
At the moment we are working together with companies and education on developping new materials for the automotive and building industry. We will keep you posted on our developments.
During the Dutch Design Week 2020 Sue Okerstrom from Lichenlabs held an inspiring lecture on biomimicry, nano structures and education. With some real life images from the electron microscope giving us an insight in the smallest universe we are able to explore. Click on the image or on this link.

LECTURE FOR INSTALLATION LECTOR NANOBIO
For the installation of Martin Bennink Professor (Lector) NanoBio we gave a lecture on biomimicry and what we can learn from natural nanostructures to devellop sustainable materials for the future.
