Natural is the 40th Formabilio furniture design contest dedicated to designers and design enthusiasts worldwide.

Be inspired by nature to create furniture and home accessories for this contest. The expressive power of a bud, the daintiness of a petal, the grace of a spider web, the energy of a honeybee fly, the sinuosity of a snake, the strength of an elephant. Do not simply reproduce your inspiration, think of the dominant element, the aspect that you can turn into furniture without falling into obviousness.
