MORPH (2010)

Morph; a thermo-regulating skin inspired by pinecones. Morph reacts to the temperature of its environment like pinecones. During forest fires, pinecones react to extreme heat and expands itself to release its’ seed. However, when it’s cold and wet, pinecones contracts to preserve and protect its seed. Similarly, Morph open its flaps to let more air in when room temperature becomes hot and closes its flaps when room temperature becomes cold. Morph was a top-ten finalist at the 2010 Toronto Green Innovation Awards.
