How Flooring Can Contribute to Biophilic Design

The Concept and Popularity of Biophilic Design

Biophilia or "love of life" is a term that was popularized by E.O. Wilson, biologist, theorist, naturalist, and author. Wilson proposed that humans naturally seek connections with nature and other forms of life. In this technological age, a significant portion of our time is spent staring at screens within the walls of offices, schools, and hotels. As a result, incorporating natural elements into our dwelling spaces has become a growing focus of architects and designers. Biophilic design within the building industry is popular for the many benefits it is said to offer: health (both physical and psychological), environmental, and economical.

Bringing the Natural World Inside

There are many ways to incorporate biophilic design into your commercial space and it can be achieved with both natural and man-made elements. While some may begin by simply incorporating large potted plants throughout a facility's space, others have gone as far as to create living walls and vertical gardens. But it's not only plants that help to create decorative, natural spaces. Other materials can be used such as rocks, water, wood, and sand. Natural scenes via printed images can also conjure a connection with nature.
