organic design

Organic designs gained the inspiration from nature and wildlife. Living in harmony with nature was inspiring artists to create products and architecture, using delicate forms, cylindrical shapes, smooth lines. Buildings became the part of the landscape. Design respected the product user and the form followed the function. This style emanated the sensitivity, the harmonious and the lack of sharp edges. In the projects, there were used colours occurring in the nature, bright pastel colours, bright green.

The first organic projects were created during the interwar period, however the bloom of this movement took place after the II world war. Designers of the post-war period wanted to use achievements of war technologies to their works of art, designing unusually harmonious products and simultaneously about the positive complexion. They claimed that „ Time wheel ” should work for the benefit of people, lead to new places. They argued that so far the resources that were brought by industrialism were being wasted. Frank Lloyd Wright and Charles Rennie Mackintosh are regarded to be precursors of organic design. They were deriving inspiration from nature and also believed that the form and function are the unity. The modern organic design in its projects take into account energy saving, renewable resources, recycling, using natural materials. This movement is very popular till the present times, thanks to its versatility, simplicity and main goals.
