Interior designers address how we live today through human experience. They consider people's mental, physical, and emotional needs using interior spaces to create a design that promotes health, safety, and welfare. Contemporary architects and interior designers are increasingly inspired by biophilia as a holistic approach to design.
Biophilia is the concept that humans possess an
intrinsic tendency to seek connections with nature.
Biophilic design takes that inclination and incorporates nature into the built environment to create connective spaces filled with light, natural textures and materials, and vegetation to improve overall health and well-being. Nature-filled areas have a number of possible benefits, including reduced heart rates and variability, lowered blood pressure, and increased nervous system function, to name a few.
Design that connects us to nature is proven to boost our productivity, fuel inspiration, and even contribute to a stronger sense of well-being. Bringing in natural elements through the use of water, greenery, natural light, stone, and wood all help create biophilic interiors.
Not every space can be designed to incorporate all of the principles of biophilic design, but there are often ways to enhance well-being through the use of a few of these elements.
