Creating Plant-Friendly, Biophilic Interiors Without Taking up Extra Floor Space
Over the last few years, biophilia has risen to the top of buzzwords heard in the design world, but it goes far beyond just being a trend. Biophilic Design is the practice of connecting people and nature within our indoor environments, instead of only enjoying nature outside. Bringing it into our home or office is said to improve mental + physical health, increase productivity, and boost happiness. There are easy ways to achieve that by incorporating natural materials, plants, earthy colors, sunlight, water elements, and organic shapes and forms. Whether you add one to your space or several, any of these changes can have a positive impact on you and your overall health and happiness, and that’s something we can all benefit from during these uncertain times.
By now we can all agree that biophilic spaces are incredibly beneficial for its inhabitants. Since most people spend a majority of their time indoors, adding plants can help increase productivity, reduce stress, improve our well-being, and, at the very least, connect us back to nature. USM Haller, known for their modular furniture system, has made it even easier to create plant-friendly spaces without taking up extra floor space. With its “World of Plants” line, you can create green landscapes indoors in an instant.

By modifying existing USM Haller furniture, you can easily incorporate greenery without the need of adding extra plant stands, structures for hanging, or wall hooks. Offices, restaurants, and public buildings can benefit from lush privacy screens or dividing walls. Homeowners can create their own herb trolley or brighten their shelving with fresh plants.
