nanotechnology and biological structures,
developments in the areas of structural and mechanical engineering,
materiality, surfaces etc. using
bionic models

The Exhibition

This new permanent exhibition at the Potsdam Biosphere manages to combine discovery and learning perfectly. The backdrop of living plants and animals is impressive in itself.
Apart from the emotional experience, the exhibits conceptualized by Impuls-Design draw attention to surprising details as well – many of the animal and plant species are subjects of
bionic research projects. This way, technological inventions can be presented with direct reference to the models in nature that inspired them. The explanation for the special flexibility of bamboo is found right next to
a giant bamboo plant. The astonishing flexibility of the fins of fish is explained at the rim of the water basin. The structure of snakeskin is explained with the ball python in sight, the animal that
served as a blueprint for protecting surfaces against extreme wear and tear.
