Modeled after naturally occurring forms, shapes, or patterns, the term was first used in the mid 1930’s. Biomorphism highlights the influence of biology even mimicking natural shapes in usable objects. Biomorphism has links to Art Nouveau, Surrealism, and Industrial Design as it transcends geographic locations and eras. Mid-Century designers such as Isamu Noguchi, Eero Saarinen, and Arne Jacobsen utilized new technology like molded wood to create rounded forms that epitomized biomorphic style in the Mid-Twentieth century to create work that felt comfortable and modern.
