What is Organic Framing?

Have you heard the term "Organic" applied to almost everything today? Well - yes it has also been applied to picture framing.
The best definition I can come up with is that organic framing is;
"The design of a frame for a work of art that is inspired from the creative mind of the artist/designer and is unusual in that it takes a form not normally associated with a picture frame"
One such example recently shown at the Olympic Games in Vancouver, BC Canada and produced for its client by MatShop is this aluminum design.

The question of the day is - do you have an example of an "organic" frame?
What is your definition and does this term even apply here?

Ok - so that is more than one question....
