From Home Lighting Control to Complete Retreats, Read These Can’t-Miss Biophilia Highlights
2019’s CEDIA Expo was abuzz with wellness trends, including biophilia. Originally referring to “the love of living things,” the term has expanded to the smart home industry, as you’ll find out later.
CEDIA showed us an entire “Wellness Pavilion” dedicated to big brands like Rayva, Delos and more, all displaying products that brought the outside in. So, why is this important? Humans spend the vast majority of our time inside, which deprives us of the light, fresh air and relaxing nature sounds we need. Biophilia, to a large extent, gives that back.
As CE Pro editor Julie Jacobson puts it, “Nature can make us whole again, and if you can’t get enough of the real stuff, you can fake it quite effectively. The research is pretty clear on the health benefits of certain nature simulations (applied in certain ways), such as circadian lighting, air movement and purification, climate controls, and nature scenes playing on ordinary TVs with a sound-system assist to play birds and streams.”
