…le designer industriel australien Edward Linnacre de la Swinburne University, à Melbourne. Ou plutôt, le bio-mimétisme : car, à la suite de la pire sécheresse que l’Australie ait connue, Linnacre s'est inspiré du scarabée du désert, qui collecte sur ses ailes la rosée du matin. … Asutralian industrial designer Edward Linnacre, from Swinburne University in Melbourne.
