This study investigates the transformative potential of recycled materials, specifically plastic, in product design, with a central focus on integrating biophilic principles. Plastics, valued for their affordability and versatility, have witnessed a surge in production over the last six decades, leading to environmental challenges in their use and disposal. The research highlights the unsustainable trajectory of current plastic consumption and advocates for recycling plastic waste into new products such as decorative items and kitchenware. Simultaneously, the study explores the concept of biophilia, an innate human affinity for the natural world, and its application in biophilic design, which integrates natural elements into spaces to enhance well-being and environmental connection. The chapter begins with an examination of product design literature, providing key definitions and a historical context, before delving into biophilic designs in product design, recycling symbols, and the integration of hydroponic systems. The literature review reveals a significant gap in knowledge, setting the stage for the research to contribute to sustainable and nature-inspired design practices. This comprehensive exploration underscores the potential synergy between recycled materials and biophilic design in addressing environmental challenges while advancing innovative and environmentally conscious product design.
