Abstract

Biomimicry in design, in its simplest form, is taking a decision from nature. Design inspirations focus more on nature while renewing and advancing from the past to the present. This design concept and application approach, which started especially after the second half of the 1900s, turned into a method that was adopted and applied even more in the 2000s. Data belonging to nature, which are reflected in the design as a concept, can be reflected on the form as well as conceptually. Within the scope of the study, the hermaphrodite characteristic of grouper fish was taken as a basis. Hermaphrodite is the condition of carrying the double sex characteristics seen in the living ecosystem. When this situation is considered within the biomimicry design perspective; As a result of today's modernizing and changing life phenomena, it can be interpreted by using both male (masculine) characteristics and female (feminine) characteristics together. It can create a genderless neutral depiction that carries both genders and thus appeals to both directions. The design field, more specifically interior spaces, can be rationalized with this view. In the study, which was handled within the scope of the qualitative research method, an interior space proposal was made in terms of providing genderless use in both directions and breaking the gender-based use of an interior within the framework of hermaphrodite border. On the basis of the biomimicry design concept, this space proposal, which is associated with the hermaphrodite feature of grouper fish and will provide a genderless use by expanding the gender boundary, creates functionality and universality. In addition, the space, which has both a rational and conceptual counterpart, symbolizes the hermaphrodite design proposal.
