Humans and nature have always been closely linked and this instinctive connection has not changed to this day. Biophilia is a discipline that translates this fact and applies it to a variety of subjects, including business and its design principles. Why? Because the relationship between a person and their environment can impact their emotional state, efficiency and interaction. Companies are therefore faced with the task of creating environments that inspire, motivate and support their staff. One solution is biophilic design because it brings the principles of nature into the office.
Study on the importance of biophilic design in the office
A recent study “The Global Impact of Biophilic Design in the Workplace” (www.humanspaces.com) highlights the relevance of the topic, especially from a company’s point of view. For example, one of the key findings is that for one-third of respondents, the design of the office determines whether or not they would work for the company. Biophilia is establishing itself as part of the employer brand, especially during the ‘War of talents’.
“We are intensively involved in the development of workplace design. Biophilic Design is one of the most important and currently one of the most significant topics within ‘Green Building Trends’, explains Jonathan Brune, Project Manager LUCTRA®.
“Natural daylight, according to the study, is the most common requirement for work. As we know, this is not always feasible, so we want to make a significant contribution to improving an individual’s situation in the workplace with our biodynamic LUCTRA® luminaires. Our luminaires can recreate natural daylight and therefore stimulate the corresponding impulses.”
