Biophilic Design – A Growing Trend in the Workplace

It’s undeniable that biophilia has become an emerging design trend over the past year. With increased interest around sustainability and ‘going green’ it is no wonder there has been an explosion of interest surrounding the topic of late.

Biophilic design is an innovative way to incorporate the natural world into our workplace, as, let’s face it, many of the working population spend a huge amount of their lives in an enclosed office space daily.

Below we have listed the most popular biophilic trends that are emerging in 2020 and explain why integrating nature into our work areas is so important:

Types of Biophilia in the Workplace

Hanging plants from the ceiling creates a visual focal point and pleasant feature of the workplace. It breaks up traditional block white walls and fluorescent lighting to bring a calming influence on the office.

Green walls and moss walls not only look amazing, but they also have a natural sound proofing quality too, making them a perfect green option for offices and various other commercial environments.

Benefits of Biophilia

Ditch traditional office decor and bring plant life into your workplace to reap the benefits nature has to offer.

It is a second nature to humans (pardon the pun) to crave the outdoors. Nature has a wealth of health benefits, being in green spaces improves overall well-being, helps to reduce stress and can improve collaboration and as a result, this boosts employee morale and satisfaction.

Plants are not only aesthetically pleasing; they have been proven to boost creativity and productivity in the workplace. Plants help to increase oxygen levels, reduce humidity, and bring workers closer to nature in an otherwise urban environment.
