Simbiotek Design Lab

Sim–bio–tek = Simulate – Life – Technology Simbiotek is a design studio which focuses on the relationship in biology and architecture at the juncture of science, materiality and form. We strive to design objects that are created through research and reinterpretation of concepts found in biomimcry and structural systems.
Each of our products are digitally designed and hand crafted after rapid prototyping fabrication with a laser cutting machine or three-dimensional printer. We hope to bring awareness to fragile symbiotic relationships in degrading ecosystems and human populations around the world. Our designs are inspired by unique plant formations we see while traveling and often by architectural studies and analysis contracted while designing a building or public space.We also are interested in ancient culture and anthropology, reinterpreting traditional forms of human expression – like jewelry, carving, or textile patterns – into modern representations. We focus on utilizing modern fabrication methods like rapid prototyping which allows for a high-quality output, improving the functionality of each product. Study nature, love nature, it will never fail you. -Frank Lloyd Wright
