The “Subterranean Seaweed Garden” is a a privately commissioned art piece that functions as a gentle privacy screen in a large room.

The client wanted something non-invasive to separate their studio corner from the rest of the living room, without making the entire space feel smaller. This delicate screen achieves the need for subtle separation while adding a truly unique and bespoke piece of art into the space.

Comprising of natural materials, featuring organic patterns and colors, and responding to air flow with its gentle swaying -this project fulfills many of the criteria for a spatial intervention that positively contributes to human health and well being.

In addition to meeting its functional and aesthetic needs, this piece also fulfills the criteria of a “biophilic” space.

According to Metropolis magazine, “Biophilic design seeks to connect our inherent need to affiliate with nature in the modern built environment. An extension of the theory of biophilia, biophilic design recognizes that our species has evolved for more than 99% of its history in adaptive response to the natural world and not to human created or artificial forces. We became biologically encoded to associate with natural features and processes.”

Studies show that humans are healthier and more productive in biophillic environments.
