‘Bio­philia’ light box

The Irish Times - Thursday - Property - - Interiors -

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
