Bruce Sterling sends word of these examples of neo-biological "Tech Nouveau" design. Pretty stuff to look at, very day-after-tomorrow:
"Santiago Calatrava's addition to the Milwaukee Art Museum looks like a giant bird about to take off."
The Sawaya Calla Chair, inspired by the form of a lily.
"A new digital camera for Creative Labs by the California company Whipsaw Design takes its inspiration from the many-chambered spiral shell called the nautilus."
There's tons more at the European site Design Boom, which bills itself as "the independent voice for lovers of flowers" (is this a translation engine error?), but which is chock-full of the latest on architecture and design.
