Introduction to Biophilic Design

Biophilic design or Biophilia (our innate love of nature) is the concept of infusing interior design with nature to create an environment that evokes feelings of happiness and serenity. It's the newest trend for interior design and wellness this year, so learn more about its principles here!

What is Biophilia?

Bringing Biophilic Design to your Home

Biophilia is our desire to connect with the natural world, which is especially more prominent when we live in buildings without much direct contact to nature. It is suggested that our innate attraction to plants has been built through hundreds of thousands of years of living in agrarian environments. Being around nature is therefore sympathetic to our DNA and overall health & wellbeing.

Through biophilic design, we can introduce plants to our homes & offices to create spaces full of life and energy. Surrounding ourselves with plants is the perfect way to connect with nature whilst also creating a beautiful interior garden. Bringing the outside in does not only improve our interiors aesthetically, but studies show that it promotes an array of emotional, physical and mental health benefits, from air purification to boosting productivity as well as creativity, and reducing stress.
