Black & White
Biophilic Design and Wellness: Biomorphic Forms & Patterns, Material Connections, and Complexity & Order
A black and white color combination is the timeless classic, which is why we love incorporating it into our work. The duo manages to retain hints of decades-old glamour, yet still has the power to feel fresh and new within every space.
While neutrals never truly go out of style, there is a key to keeping things balanced visually and to making the pair work together successfully. To help you incorporate this chic pairing in your own home, today’s post is all about our go-to design rules for black and white spaces. We promise that with these parameters in mind, designing your dream environment will be within reach.
Outdoor Patio Entertainment
Our biophilic design and wellness series continues today with patterns eight, nine, and ten: biomorphic forms & patterns, material connections with nature, and complexity & order. With an emphasis on visual and textural elements of spaces, these three patterns work together to create spaces that prioritize our natural inclinations towards the outside world.
Creating Office Balance
Patio season is upon us, and as we all begin to embrace the warmer weather and longer days, it’s high time to prepare our outdoor spaces for that inevitable entertaining season. In today’s post, we’ve rounded up four key elements to help you transform your exterior zone into an atmosphere you’ll never want to leave. Read on for our top tips – your patio will be a gorgeous modern getaway before you know it.
Biophilic Design and Wellness: Dynamic & Diffuse Light and Connection with Natural Systems
Gone are the days when all offices were predictable environments. Though workstations do still exist, businesses with a mind towards collaboration and fresh new ideas have looked to designs that help, rather than hinder, individuality. As such, it’s become apparent that the most successful office spaces manage a key balance between openness and privacy.
Sculptural Outdoor Furniture
This point in our series on biophilic design brings us to patterns six and seven: dynamic & diffuse light and connection with natural systems – both incredibly beneficial to the ways in which we function on a daily basis. Read on for details on how these patterns can help to bring our spaces to life in highly impactful ways.
The Perfect Minnesota Staycation
As we turn the corner into spring, patio season feels almost tangible, and with the shift in weather comes new opportunities to make a statement in your outdoor space. What better way to do that than to incorporate a few sculptural furniture pieces? Whether you’re adding just a unique side table or opting for a full collection, it can completely transform the way you enjoy your outdoor space. The unexpected curves, colors, and angles help to create a sense of excitement and interest, ultimately doubling as both comfortable seating options and unique art.
Biophilic Design and Wellness: Non-Rhythmic, Thermal and Airflow, and Water Patterns
Though this time of year can give us all feelings of restlessness as we await spring, it’s also the perfect time to take advantage of the “staycation.” After all, just a few hours’ drive away, there are incredible weekend getaways just waiting for you to enjoy. Whether you’re planning a romantic weekend with a loved one or want something a bit more active for the whole family or a group of friends, there’s nothing quite like a cabin escape in northern Minnesota where you can take in the snowy winter views from a cozy perch. This week, we’re showing you our favorite Minnesota staycation finds, and we have a feeling that once you get a glimpse, your next getaway will be booked in an instant.
The next three principles in our biophilic design series are non-rhythmic stimuli, thermal and airflow variability, and presence of water. Like visual and non-visual patterns, these three elements work to create a space that encourages a connection with nature, and in turn, releases profound health benefits within us.
