About Jun Kamei
Using nature as inspiration for innovation and emulation, Jun Kamei, a Biomimicry designer has designed futuristic, underwater breathing suits (Amphibio) that actually allow you to breath underwater, but look good doing it, clothing that can receive and understand implicit thought and pearls made with human breath. Designing for the future, but fascinated with the surrounding world, Jun’s passion for Nature’s hidden designs are reflected in his work, his frequent TED talks and his photography.
Jun will discuss how “Design” only dates for a few centuries, while living organisms found in Nature have developed solutions to multiple challenges through the process of evolution. Talking about his creative journey between Nature, science, art, design and engineering.
