The Formal Structure of the Voronoi Scheme and Its Role in Enriching the Decorative Design Considering the Morphology of the Structural Systems of Nature

The modern movement in design did not emerge from non-existence but has been the result of constant and significant development in the new construction methodologies that are followed by many, such as the ones focused on nature that have regular or irregular construction systems which are superimposed or grids. As well as others that are aligned with the role and aesthetic value that distinguishes each element from one another, one such grid structure is evident in the dragonfly wing. This structure was one of the most important sources for Voronoi Diagrams that enables the dividing of surfaces and spaces in an unconventionally engineered method. Therefore, the designs were implemented using the real color combinations that belong to the external appearance of a dragonfly in nature that has always provided a wealth of examples, as it is the source and backbone of the study. Nature is the first tutor for man and the source from which every artist has adopted their fine artistic values through direct observation and analysis of its elements which he observed and formulated through his own and diverse method. After the study of the morphology of the dragonfly the researcher has foreseen that the utilization of the true colors of the external appearance of the dragonfly and Voronoi diagrams as a structure will enrich the designing experience and offer the designer new and innovative solutions.
