Design Insider Tektura Wallcoverings Richard Osbourne Product

Biophilia is the idea that we possess an innate tendency to seek connections with nature. Biophilic design is the use of and link to nature in the design of a space, as a way to improve the user’s health and wellbeing. In other words, for interior design, it’s all about bringing the outdoors into the interior! There have been numerous studies over the last 35 years on the benefits of bringing a natural connection into the interior:

  • Office design: productivity can be increased by 8%, rates of well-being up by 13%, increases in creativity, with reduced absenteeism and presenteeism
  • Hospitality design: guests are willing to pay 23% more for rooms with views of biophilic elements
  • Education spaces: increased rates of learning 20-25%, improved test results, concentration levels and attendance, reduced impacts of ADHD
  • Healthcare spaces: post-operative recovery times decreased by 8.5%, reduced pain medication by 22%
  • Retail: the presence of vegetation & landscaping has been found to increase average rental rates on retail spaces with customers indicating they were willing to pay 8-12 % more for goods and services. (Statistics from Oliver Heath Design)

Their 5 latest Richard Osbourne murals are where we see the next step in biophilic design heading – a different take on colour, perspective and design – each mural brings something new to the world of biophilia.
