One of the biggest interior design trends of 2022 is Biophilic Design - a sustainable design trend which connects human beings to nature within man-made environments without compromising the modern way of living.
Bringing the outside world in, interior biophilic design makes use of natural materials, including clay, wood and concrete and ‘living’ ecosystems, such as plants and shrubbery to create self-sustaining environments, enhance airflow and improve mental wellbeing.
As Ergonomic Designer, Neil Diffrient says, ‘Why would you design something if it didn't improve the human condition?’ A well-designed space is not only a space which looks aesthetically appealing but also improves the lives of those who interact with it.
Taking office plants to a new level, living walls are becoming popular in the workplace to create flourishing, nourishing and enriching environments for all employees. Bringing natural elements into the workplace has proven to promote productivity, stimulate creativity and improve overall well-being.
Using natural materials can also positively impact an environment and the way people interact within the space. Moss walls can be used to soften the acoustics of a room and absorb excess noise to create a quiet and calming space. Natural materials, such as wood and stone, have also been proven to reduce stress and anxiety.
Integrating delicately controlled lighting into a space can be used to easily change the intent of a space. Controlled lighting can be dimmed to create intimate and calming spaces which are ideal for communal break out areas or create natural light in the absence of windows.
