Design Inspiration

Synbio by Kathy Holowko is a curious being, unreal and yet somehow possible. A friendly frankencreature born of spliced genes with the capacity to dazzle using its chromatophore patterning. It’s a fusion of the words “synthetic biology”, a fascinating area of research that seeks to create new life forms from those found in nature. Synbio is the golden child, a sci-fi future pet, with cephalopod skin and the temperament of a beloved canine.
