A sustainable design based on biomimicry can still fulfill the functional needs of humans and be visually satisfying by representing man's connection to nature. Biomorphic means life, living forms, it’s often associated with organic shapes and patterns and it has its wide use in landscape architecture. In the past few decades, there has been a great deal of progress in the study of natural systems as a means of developing contemporary design solutions. The biomimetic approach involves a close connection between biology and technology, which requires special attention because these are two areas that are fundamentally different. Biology is descriptive, broad, and variable, while technology is more numerical, with many guidelines and limitations. By this way, biomimetic as a design tool has so much potential that in the future it has yet to find comprehensive application in projects developed in the landscape architecture profession. A design solution that uses biomimicry can be as h...ighly stylized on different ways, but the aesthetics will always be dictated by the perfect shapes of the nature. This reserch is inspired by the specific shape and unique beauty of the orchid flower. The study involves exploring the biomimetic pattern of a flower in its parametric modeling and its application in landscape design. This paper deals with the research of a species of the genus Phalaenopsis sp., it contains analysis of its natural form using a bionic pattern and parametric modeling of its flower. The result is the development of a conceptual solution for urban furniture designed for representative city areas. This part of the urban furniture is conceived as an organic and spontaneous structure of a beautiful orchid flower in the form of a unique city armchair. The design of city furniture in urban areas plays one of the crucial roles in the process of shaping the modern life, behavior and attitude of the contemporary urban humans towards the natural environment. The application of biomimetic forms has a particular importance while constructing an urban furniture, as it achieves the approach of the urban human to nature, and in some ways restores their lost connection. Applying a biomimetic approach could extend the role of landscape architecture like enhancing shape, function and design processes as a primary initiator in collaborative, sustainable design.
