It has been scientifically proven that incorporating biophilic designs into the workspace has significant benefits to our health and well-being, on top of seeing an increase in productivity, cognitive ability, creativity, and concentration.
Even businesses at the forefront of workplace design, such as Google, Microsoft, Apple, and Amazon, are investing heavily in biophilic design elements. So it’s no surprise that more and more employers are looking to add biophilia and nature-inspired products into their office.
Of course, biophilic designs are not just pegged for the workspace; they can be adopted and added into other sectors such as educational facilities, the hospitality industry, and residential areas.
As greenery continues on its meteoric rise of being one of the biggest design trends, below are a few ideas on how to create your own biophilic and nature-inspired microenvironments.
BuzziPlanter is our latest acoustic solution designed to bring nature into the workspace while helping to create various luscious green microenvironments to work, gather, and relax. The upholstered biophilic office divider is made from high-density foam and arrives in numerous color and size variations. On top of that, BuzziPlanter's superpower is absorbing excessive noise in open spaces, creating healthier environments for people to thrive. Start adding a pop of color to your office!
On top of adding a bit of green into your workspace, our decorative acoustic BuzziFalls and BuzziFalls Standing office dividers help to add a layer of privacy. Both are made from a dual-layer of BuzziFelt, therefore providing substantial noise-reduction capabilities, and can be precision-cut into a range of biophilic and geometric patterns. You can also add a dose of color into your workspace by using BuzziFelt Printed, which features three nature-inspired prints to suit your décor.
A great alternative to real plants is BuzziCactus and BuzziPlant. These charming free-standing office dividers are created with a structural honeycomb cardboard core and covered in acoustic foam, offering up sound absorption while adding a playful design element to any workspace. To make it your own, stick pins and notes into them for an added personal touch.
BuzziMood is a perfect alternative for conventional noise-control solutions. Made from preserved reindeer moss, this graphic acoustic solution promotes a relaxed and calm atmosphere in the workspace.
Along with mitigating noise, BuzziMood serves as a natural air humidity indicator. As a bonus, BuzziMood is low-maintenance and requires no watering!
