Astroturf to me is a fascinating design concept. It is a familiar manufacturing process of creating a product that not only lasts but has functional use, whether it be for a playground or soccer field. However, what is interesting is that it is also a process of taking the natural and transforming it into the artificial, “unnaturally” replicating nature. When creating this product, I wonder what the designers think when it comes to the emulation of how “natural” grass should look. In doing so, another fascinating concept to me is that the grass in astroturf looks even better and more pristine, even if artificial, than real grass itself. This product speaks volumes to me about the principles of unnatural perfections and natural imperfections in design considerations.
