Designing products with aspects borrowed from nature (either aesthetic or functional) is known as Biomimicry.

There is an actual site dedicated to offering a resource to designers on this very topic, it can be found here at http://www.asknature.org/

another great design resource can be found at www.monkeedesign.com
