Biophilia Philosophy

Biophilia is an important area of BioBlu philosophy.

Biophilia

Connect the inside to the outside and vice versa.

Biophilia is defined as the innate human instinct to connect with nature and other living beings. The term is derived from the Greek words for “life” and “love or affection;” making its literal translation “love of life.”  For us is, “CREATING A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YACHTS & NATURE”, but most important with the people live on board and on the sea.

Under the canopy of biophilic design, there are three categories:

  1. Nature in the Space. The direct presence of nature in a space in the form of plants, animals, water, breeze, scents, light, shadows, and other natural elements.
  2. Natural Analogues. The representational presence of natural materials, patterns, objects, colours, and shapes incorporated into interior design, ornamentation, decor, and furniture.
  3. Nature of the Space. The incorporation of spatial elements commonly found in nature such as expansive views, places of sensory refuge (such as a quiet and room )
