A biophilic gym is a gym where everything is designed with well-being in mind. The attention is on the interior design, the overall atmosphere as well as the training equipment. Like in every biophilic design, it all starts with abundant natural light. As a complement, wellness artificial lighting (i.e. designed around human circadian cycle) gifts guests with an energizing effect during the day and a relaxing one at night time.
From grass-like carpet to textured wall panelling, the space of a biophilic gym features many tactile stimulations, which is the technical name for that deeply-rooted desire to go and touch something.

Why it’s a great idea to install a moss wall in your gym:
- Preserved plants are 100% natural and evergreen
- An allergen free alternative to flowers
- Whilst flowers easily wilt and need to be thrown away on a weekly basis or replaced every other weeks, preserved moss canvases and plant walls can remain fresh over their lifetime of up to 15 years.
- These plants retain their vibrancy even in colder conditions making them perfect for cooler spaces that are not easily heated.
- They do not require sunlight and they thrive in place here there is no natural light.
- They are perfect for basement or high-basement rooms, restrooms and rooms without windows.
- Over the lifetime of your preserved plant installations or arrangements you save hundreds of litres of water.
- This is an excellent alternative to cutting flowers that will be thrown away as soon as they start to spoil, or using plastic flowers that encourage the rise of plastic waste and are not bio-degradable.
