David Fanchon: The Pearl

When David Fanchon first premiered his residential concept model called The Pearl last March, he garnered the attention of many who saw his design as a fulfillment of the promise of biomimicry. Not only does Fanchon’s design capture the innate beauty of a classic seashell, but he also went to great lengths to make the model as eco-friendly and efficient as possible by incorporating design principles that utilize the natural environment.
