Design

Designed Using Biomimicry

We borrow design advice from nature. With biomimicry, we implement 3.8 billion years of research and development to stack solutions that are not only sustainable, but regenerative.

Product

AquaWeb’s overarching water management strategy emulates epiphytes, including mosses, lichens, and ferns. These are non-parasitic plants that grow on the surface of other plants. Epiphytes wick moisture from the air and make that water accessible to neighboring organisms. Similarly, AquaWeb acts as absorptive infrastructure for atmospheric water in the built environment.

In structure and function, our system employs a host of biomimetic strategies including how a spider web captures water, the common ice plant’s distributive water storage technique, the way mycelium transports water to plant roots, and the structural support of a beehive’s honeycomb.

AquaWeb is a living product that continues to evolve as we explore new adaptations, test, and iterate.

BUSINESS

From a business perspective, NexLoop mimics a mycelial web’s vast matrix of interconnecting networks. Our team is multidisciplinary and internationally distributed to build unique relationships with diverse stakeholders and bank resources for the greater ecosystem. We share education and business resources, connect communities, and promote both growth and resilience.
