What is Biophilic Design?
What is biophilic design and why should you bring it into your space?
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.
Why should you choose Green Wallscapes moss art?
Biophilic design goes beyond the addition of potted plants to your workspaces and common areas. Green Wallscapes enhances the biophilic vision by creating no-hassle living walls using natural textures and materials, bright colors, and preserved and faux vegetation to enhance the workplace environment. We all know the urge to touch a natural element that inspires us and ask, “Is this real?”. Preserved moss at Green Wallscapes is real, yet not living, meaning it doesn’t need water or lighting to thrive. Maintenance is minimal, often requiring dusting or misting just a couple times a year. Otherwise, just hang it up and enjoy! Regardless of the space you want to design, there are endless ways to incorporate biophilic design into your open spaces to make everyone feel welcome.
