‘Biophilia’ light box
The humble potted plant is now central to the new decosphere and biophilia, a term coined by US naturalist and Pulitzer prize-winning author EO Wilson. Some researchers claim work and home environments decorated using plants and greenery can reduce stress, enhance creativity and clarity of thought and even improve our well-being. London-based Biophilic Designs is the brainchild of Alexander Bond and has tapped the zeitgeist with its series of living walls and light box partitions that give a three-dimensional, layered depiction of the plant. These range from ¤536 for a desk-size to a floor design like that pictured about, ¤4,290, ex delivery.
The collection includes cork and wood furniture and light pendants inspired by the hanging gardens of Babylon, from ¤490, that can be used above tables, work surfaces and is ideal for succulents, ground coverings and air plants. biophilicdesigns.co.uk
