Routine and lack of contact with an outside world can have fatal consequences, like losing concentration, stress, tiredness, and even depression.
We believe that this problem has an easy solution. This week, at Bevlan Blog, we would like to give you some advice on how applying Biophilic Design can help you create a comfortable and relaxing working environment for you and your employees.

It creates a peaceful atmosphere and improves the user’s wellbeing. That’s especially important when it comes to office space, as that is where people spend most of their day.
