Biophilic Design

Have you ever wondered why you feel so much better when you step outside and get into nature? Doctors tout the positive effects of being in nature for both our physical and mental health. This very idea is what we call Biophilia, or the innate human instinct to connect with nature and other living beings.

Now, more than ever, Americans in particular are beginning to recognize the mental health risks associated with stressful work environments. Sitting at a desk for 8 hours straight can oftentimes be detrimental to both our mental and physical health, even causing health problems such as hypertension, decreased mental health, and cardiovascular disease, among others. That’s why we suggest incorporating Biophilic Design into your building decor.

Not only does live foliage create a beautiful, aesthetically pleasing environment, it can also improve air quality, reduce stress, and increase productivity. You can look to many well known companies for examples of the positive results of biophilic designs, such as Apple, Google, and Amazon.
