What is Biophilic Design?

Biophilic design is a concept in the Interior design industry that is designed to make office spaces more connected to their natural surroundings. It utilizes both direct and indirect nature as well as the space and conditions of a building/office environment to increase the employee's connection to nature. It is a proven concept that can help create a more enjoyable space and provide a more inclusive environment for all.

The biophilic office concept means that companies now want to create a workplace environment where they can feel close to nature.




Biophilic design is about creating spaces that are closer to nature. This can be achieved in a number of ways, such as using materials that are derived from nature or incorporating elements of nature into the design itself. The goal of biophilic design is to create a space that feels more natural and less artificial. This is thought to have a number of benefits for both our physical and mental health. For example, being close to nature has been shown to reduce stress levels, improve moods, and increase overall well-being.



When did biophilic design begin?

The concept of biophilic design dates back to the early 1980s, when Edward O. Wilson, a biologist, outlined his philosophy of biophilia, which is based on the hypothesis that humans are biologically designed to interact with nature in some way. However recently there has been a resurgence in the need for Biophilic solutions within the office environment.
