In the design world, there has been renewed interest in biophilia – the idea that humans have an innate affinity for nature, and that bringing nature and nature-inspired elements into our interior spaces can somehow enhance our well-being. Is that something you believe in?
Absolutely. I just returned from a two-week, very basic camping holiday. I love being outside for hiking, biking or just recreation, feeling the elements. Most people have disconnected from nature, but we are all part of it, and I think that integrating some of these elements into our life reminds us of that. And in the best case, it’s sustainable too.
