What Is Biophilic Design?
The Biophilic design trend is born to make the best of a home, bringing nature to the inside and connecting the interior to the outside. It can be made by maximizing natural light and introducing plants, but also by using nature-inspired colours, materials, and shapes.
For example, a house built between trees would have large windows to capture the green landscape outside. It can also have an indoor fountain to bring the gentle sound of water into space. Fresh flowers and plants add visual interest, but they can also enhance the scent of a garden. And natural textures like wood, fibre and stone beckon to be touched. All of this creates a multi-sensory experience, much like what we find in nature.
Incorporating natural materials into the built environment can lessen stress, so an element of biophilic design contains natural materials for furniture and fabrics such as wood, cotton, linen, cane and bamboo. Organic forms that mimic nature are often used to create a sense of ease and natural connection to a building or space.
In this design trend, Nature is the limit and Boca do Lobo has the right pieces to match it. Starting with the famous tree-shaped Eden Center Table and the great Empire Dining Table, made with high-quality wood and illuminating all these, the beautiful Hera Collection, with small golden leaves.
