Shape and Form

Body Parts

Anyone who has ever designed a space knows that inspiration can come from the most obscure places — the way a leaf makes shadows in the sunlight, the foam on a wave in the ocean, the color of a smoky fireplace. But lately one of the greatest design trends comes from the absolute most obvious place — a place that’s been right under our noses — the human body. And we’re not just talking about sculptures. Parts of the human body can be found everywhere from furniture to fabric. Here, explore some of our favorites.
