If you’ve spent any time in nature, you know it has the ability to make you feel happier and reenergised. The ‘biophilia hypothesis’ suggests we love nature because we evolved in it and need it for our psychological wellbeing.
Yet people now spend 90% of their time indoors. Because of this, businesses are integrating biophilic design into the workplace – hues or elements that mimic natural materials and connect us to the outside world.
Research demonstrates tangible benefits for individuals and organisations in terms of wellbeing, engagement and performance, providing a clear link between biophelia, lower staff turnover and absence rates.
