Bringing the plant world indoors.
Biophilia is a term coined by the Harvard naturalist Dr. Edward O. Wilson to describe what he saw as humanity’s “innate tendency to focus on life and lifelike processes,” and to be drawn toward nature, to feel an affinity for it, a love, a craving. To interact or be closely associated with other forms of life in nature : a desire or tendency to commune with nature.
Workpointe has several products that integrate the plant world. Whether it’s indoor grow systems, living plant walls, or even planters. We’ve got lots of way to help you interact with your plants.
