Bio-What? Biophilia is a term coined by Harvard University myrmecologist and conservationist E.O. Wilson. Despite its odd name, the concept is simple. It’s all about how human beings need a connection to nature and living things in general. Biophilic Design is about capitalizing on this connection to create harmonious and healthy spaces.
In a world where we’re all spending more and more time at home, Biophilic Designs have taken off. It’s about more than looking pretty, it’s about creating a space that supports your health and wellness. Bringing nature into a room is a great way to create a space that you’ll feel good spending hours in.
Biophilic Design Materials
The first step in creating a biophilic space is to incorporate natural materials. Natural stone cut from the earth and brought to your home is a great way to satisfy that connection to nature we all crave. Each slab has a unique character that can not be duplicated. Pair it with wood grains, airy tones, and lots of natural light to support wellness in an incredible way. Studies have shown that even just a visual connection to nature lowers blood pressure and heart rate, improved mental engagement, and positively impacted attitude. So just being able to see the natural stone in your space can improve your health.
Using natural stone in the bathroom gives you the double whammy of stone and water working together. Human beings respond positively to any presence of water. It reduces stress, improves concentration, and enhances memory restoration. Who wouldn’t want to end a stressful day relaxing in a natural stone tub?
