The Benefits of Biophilic Design

What is biophilic design and why should you bring it into your office? 

Biophilia is humans’ innate love for the natural world. Biophilic design was popularized in the 1980s when American biologist Edward Wilson observed how urbanization and immigration from rural areas fostered a disconnect with the natural world. Spending a majority of our days inside (on average 90%), indoor spaces have a high impact on our daily lives, and biophilic design harnesses an innovative way to bring nature into our indoor spaces. Biophilic design enhances our love for nature and creates natural environments for us to work and learn while avoiding unnecessary negative impacts on the environment. 


There is a direct correlation between biophilic design and well-being. According to the World Health Organization, stress related illnesses will be the largest contributors to poor health in 2020. Biophilic elements can improve productivity, lower stress levels, and enhance creativity by playing a therapeutic role.
