One With Nature...

What is Biophilic Design?

Fundamentally, At its heart, this is a relationship between people and nature. We may instinctively know the advantages natural light and air have on our wellbeing. It's a key element that all our staff at Quantum2 seek to implement in our interiors plans and designs for our clients, as it always yields positive results in staff satisfaction, morale and workforce retention.

But now, thanks to technologolical advances, we are finding out more about the positive way that digital imagery and natural elements have on us. An ongoing research project into this issue by researchers such as Oliver Health and organisational psychologist - Cary Cooper, titled "The Human Spaces" report into "The Global Impact of Biophilic Design in the Workplace" claims that employees who work in environments with natural elements report a 15% higher level of well being, are 6% more productive and 15% more creative overall. This is one reason why a growing number of workplaces not only use more natural imagery in their design, be it in the way of digital wall paper coverings, but also feature intelligent planting and even plant walls whose beneficial effects are both physiological and psychological.

A growing trend is also evident in the field of biomimetics, which describes the design of alll things that mimic the functionality of natural forms. Nature is rarely wasteful and invariably creates forms perfectly aligned to functions. It was the architect Frank Lloyd Wright who once said: “harmony between human habitation and the natural world through design approaches so sympathetic and well integrated with its site that buildings, furnishings, and surroundings become part of a unified, interrelated composition”.

The promise of biomimetic design is that it is not only creating new ,organically inspired seating such as:

Ethos

But biomimetic design, also promises to find ways of expressing the interrelationships between the traditional working office, interior architecture, inspiring furniture, all brought together by organically focused interior design.

Our ethos at Quantum2, especially when working with our clients based in the concrete and fabricated panelled walls of city centre offices, is to help bring that organic, biomimetic ambience of nature to our interior designs and plans, promoting staff wellbeing, morale, and retention of our clients' much valued workforce.
