So how does Biophilia change the mind set in the workplace and bring benefits to the employers and employees?
Have you ever noticed that it’s hard to find many natural materials in a typical modern office? In fact, it’s hard to imagine anywhere further removed from nature than grey laminated desks, metal and plastic chairs and synthetic carpets! Of course, these items bring their own benefits, but surely our instincts tell us that we should surround ourselves with more natural products.
Your interior landscape doesn't have to be quaint or old-fashioned when using natural products. Actually, you can easily create cutting-edge designs.
Plant containers - Many plant containers are made from natural materials. Wood, woven banana leaves and palm fronds, bamboo, cork, sea-shells and mother-of-pearl are all used and come in every shape and size imaginable. You can also replicate the appearance of natural materials even when using artificial products.
Accessorize - You can use decorative top dressings and other finishing touches to complete your displays. You could even use locally-sourced materials such as gravel, shingle or slate to add a truly local feel. Why not add ornamental driftwood, sea-shells or large rocks to the display.
