In a fast-paced world, reconnecting with nature has never been more important. The biophilic design trend, which creates environments that blur the boundaries between the indoors and outdoors, is a way to make humans feel closer to nature. 

In a home, embracing biophilic design can lead to a more serene and healthful living environment. For those looking for biophilic design in office spaces, the benefits extend beyond aesthetics. Studies have shown that incorporating natural elements in the workplace can lead to increased creativity, productivity, and overall employee well-being. 

One of the key principles of biophilic design is to maximize natural light exposure by incorporating large windows, skylights, and glass doors. This not only reduces reliance on artificial lighting but also allows for better views of the surrounding greenery, fostering a sense of connection to the outdoors. 

Consider also opting for furniture made from sustainable materials like bamboo or rattan or adding elements like cork bulletin boards or wool rugs to enhance the biophilic atmosphere. 

Another way to adhere to this trend is by integrating natural materials such as wood, stone, and plants. Wood accents can add warmth and texture to a space, while stone elements provide a sense of grounding. 

Plants play a crucial role in biophilic design as they not only improve air quality but also evoke a sense of tranquility and vitality. Consider incorporating a variety of plant species throughout your home, from hanging plants and potted herbs to vertical gardens and living walls. One particularly innovative and trendy way to bring nature indoors is using RIVA Moss.

RIVA Moss stands out for its unique approach to incorporating nature into interior design. Responsibly sourced from Scandinavian forests and carefully transported to Spain, it is transformed into various captivating designs that effortlessly infuse spaces with a touch of the outdoors. 

Whether you are seeking a subtle accent or a striking focal point, there is a solution to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. The RIVA Moss collection offers a range of options to suit diverse preferences and design needs. RIVA Spain offers three options – predesigned framed pieces, a selection of 10-12 ready-made wall designs, or fully custom designs based on the client’s vision. So, there’s a lot of flexibility to create any kind of moss wall art from simple accents to intricate large-scale installations.

RIVA Moss also makes an ideal choice for those looking to introduce a touch of greenery into their homes without the hassle of regular care or natural light exposure. Utilizing a specialized preservation process that involves removing water and infusing glycerin, it keeps soft and pliable. When preserved this way, it maintains its look and texture for 10 years with no maintenance required. It doesn’t need any natural light or irrigation. The only requirement is keeping the relative humidity between 35-70%, like a normal interior environment.

Moreover, the moss art is very easy to install. The panels come in sizes designed for the space and are simply glued and tacked in place with finish nails. RIVA Spain provides some loose moss to fill the seams for a seamless look. Even large walls can be installed in just a day. Whether you opt for framed pieces or intricate moss walls, the straightforward installation process – involving gluing, tacking, and filling seams with loose moss – ensures that you can enjoy the benefits of biophilic design in a matter of hours. You can effortlessly transform your living or working space with the beauty of nature.

FIREWOOD

The upper section of the tree is used for firewood, which may not be suitable for flooring due to higher branch density and smaller trunk size.

CHARACTER

Our character grade comes from the middle part of the tree. This part has a visual appeal and some knots but avoids the large holes of the top part. We refer to our character grade as “light character”.

SELECT

Our select grade comes from the bottom part of the tree and is the youngest wood, which results in the absence of knots and a sleek appearance.
