Plants fulfill an ancient, profound need. This is Biophilia
In 1984, Harvard biologist Dr. Ed Wilson named our natural human affinity for nature, Biophilia.
When referring to humans’ “love of living things” Wilson describes Biophilia as the “innate tendency to focus on life and lifelike processes”
More recently Dr. Stephen Kellert ,Author & Professor of Social Ecology at Yale University noted in his latest book, The Theory, Science and Practice of Bringing Buildings to Life, that human dependence on nature goes far beyond our reliance upon material and physical sustenance. This dependence, he wrote in 1993, includes “a human craving for aesthetic, intellectual, cognitive, and even spiritual meaning and satisfaction.” This intrinsic connection, forged during our evolutionary development, plays a central role in our capacities to think, feel, communicate, create, and find meaning in life.

At ByNature, we know how important plants are in our day to day life. This is why we created our own vision of interior design with plants and mosses. Our Design Team focuses on the effects plants and greeneries will have on each individual space.
