Biologically inspired design uses biological systems as a source of inspiration to improve technical ones. Based on three case examples of biologically inspired design modeled using the C-K design theory, this research disentangles the roles of the biological knowledge and of the traditional knowledge in the bio-inspired design process. The proposed model for bio-inspiration using the C-K framework shows in which ways this interplay leads to novel concepts and highlights different aspects of the engaged collaboration process.
