Health & Aged Care specialist, InterfaceFLOR, launches a new flooring palette inspired by nature and biophilia, designed to promote wellness and improve patient recovery times.
September 30th, 2009
There have been numerous studies to suggest that there is true wisdom in biophilia – humans’ love of nature and connection to the living earth – and the positive impact that nature can have in healing environments. 1(Huelat, 2008)
As such there has been a trend in health and aged care towards evidence-based design and the incorporation of nature into the design of medical environments, in order to produce positive, calming and uplifting spaces that promote wellness.
The System 6+ Collection has been developed to mimic nature in its colours and patterns, promoting positive healing environments for health and aged care facilities.
