Last year biomimicry emerged to be a major topic in many conversations at SXSW Eco. This year we are once again looking to nature to enhance your conference experience. From designing our exhibition in collaboration with BiomimicryTX to Biomimicry3.8 hosting a panel session dedicated solely to the topic - this year nature will be all around you.
To help bring nature’s influence deeper into our conference we are thrilled to feature lighting creations provided by WakaNINE and designed by eminent New Zealand artist David Trubridge. Trubridge designs sculptural lamps constructed not only with an environmental conscience, but with a strong focus on using art as a tool for storytelling.
For SXSW Eco 2013, WakaNINE will be donating three lamps to the winners of the the Place by Design Competition in the categories of Transformative Design, Community Impact and Global Potential. WakaNINE will also be illuminating the SXSW Eco Closing Party with a collection of their fixtures.
