The definition of Biophilic is relating to, showing, or being the human tendency to interact or be closely associated with other forms of life in nature (Merriam-Webster). In basic terms, Biophilic is used to describe enjoying being close with nature in various aspects of our life. And so Biophilic Design was born.
When using the Biophilic concept in architecture and interior design, creatives will look to nature for inspiration and use this to bring to life built environments and communities where occupants will enjoy the health, environmental and resulting economic benefits Biophilic Design provides.
Greenery design is the perfect way to combine nature with man-made structures and bring a sense of harmony with the outside world to any space. Both living plants and fake plants are suitable solutions in bringing to life a Biophilic design. You can read more about how the two compare here.
It can be as simple as installing tabour units with living plantings in an office space or dedicating a wall to be adorned in artificial greenery or florals. Whichever way you choose to create a human connection with the natural world will provide endless physical and psychological benefits.
