Biophilic interior design is a concept used within the building and interior design industry to increase connectivity to the natural environment through the use of nature.
Biophilic designs are focused to create strong connections between nature and man-made environments and have proven benefits, such as helping office workers be more productive.
People’s lives have become increasingly urbanised, which means our connection to nature, natural light, green spaces, and organic materials has diminished.
Quite recently, however, attitudes to biophilic interior designs are leading to positive change. This is why Moss Life is focused on creating calming biophilic interior designs that reconnect you with nature!
Biophilic Interior Designs
The biophilic hypothesis proposes that most humans have a strong love of nature. In fact, we long for it, and without connecting with it, our health could suffer. So, biophilic interior designs are an applied solution to appease this desire for nature by integrating natural elements and processes into the built environment.
Biophilic interior designs can be implemented in the community, at home, commercial buildings, or small-project level. And if done right, the design should trigger a strong positive impact on our health and well-being.
