© Springer Nature Switzerland AG 2019.The design of a product is not an easy task; it must be a balanced combination of functionality, usability and aesthetics. The creative process of an industrial designer can be facilitated by the use of different sources during the search for ideas. Nature is full of geometries and movements that supply us with a great variety of forms and its use provides greater doses of empathy in the user-product relationship. This communication shows the process of designing urban furniture with bioinspired forms taken into account, in addition, other aspects such as ergonomics, sustainability, accessibility, etc., achieving an attractive, functional and ecological product.
