The Interior Design Shows' inaugural Conversations in Design launched on January 21, 2010. Leading designers from around the globe were invited to imagine A World Without Oil at an all-day symposium in Toronto. They shared their practical experiences in sustainable design, and dare to dream of a society that is no longer dependent on oil. The symposium provided critical insight to new and alternative practices, materials, technologies and products. It challenged its audience to think outside the box, and ultimately illuminate and inspire on the provocative subject of A World Without Oil.

Biomimicry is a design discipline that seeks sustainable solutions by emulating nature's time-tested patterns and strategies. The goal is to create products, processes, and policies that are well-adapted to life on earth long into the future. Biomimics around the world are learning to grow food like a prairie, harness energy like a leaf, create colour like a peacock, find cures like a chimp, compute like a cell, and run a business like a redwood forest. Bio-inspired designs are elegant, functional, and, not surprisingly, sustainable as well. After all, our models are organisms that manufacture without "heat, beat, and treat" methods, and ecosystems that run on sunlight and feedback, creating opportunities rather than waste. Dr. Dayna Baumeister, co-founder of the Biomimicry Guild, will describe what's new in the field, describe deeps patterns of biological design, and engage us in a discussion of what's possible when we invite nature to the design table.
