Melbourne’s DENFAIR Final: Biophilic Design

Australia’s top furniture and design fair, DENFAIR, started today and one of the show’s most intriguing themes is biophilic design.

Australia’s top furniture and design fair, DENFAIR, started today and one of the show’s most intriguing themes is biophilic design.

Biophilic design highlights the importance of our connection to the natural world when living in urban environments. Increasing amounts of research indicate that unplugging and immersing ourselves in more natural environments can lower our levels of stress, anxiety and depression.

One of the show’s most anticipated collections is Tait Furniture’s Scape range, designed by Adam Goodrum. Reminiscent of flowing rock formations, the components in Tait’s new Scape collection nest adjacently to one another with each module referencing rocky landscapes.

Designer Adam Goodrum said; “I have fond memories as a kid – playing on the elephant-like boulders in the crystalline blue and powdery white sandy coves of Western Australia’s south coast,” said Goodrum.

“Scape reminds me of this idea, the wonder of these rock masses and how they’ve been worn and weathered by waves endlessly washing over them,” he said.

Founding Director of Taut, Gordon Tait said Scape will be particularly important for communal urban spaces.

“There’s now this increasing need to draw people out of the high-density, siloed and processed living/working environments and into rejuvenating, activated common spaces,” said Tait.

“Scape intuitively entices people into its domain – whether that’s jumping on the laptop in some sunshine, taking the kids to the park, or just enjoying a breather in some wide-open space,” he said,

Part greenhouse and part cocktail lounge, the Living Cocktail Bar is an installation where herbs and botanicals will be gradually harvested from the bar walls so you can feel and smell the ingredients used in your drink right in front of you.

Also at DENFAIR Melbourne designer, Adam Cornish, has created a bar that grows its own ingredients.

Part greenhouse and part cocktail lounge, the Living Cocktail Bar is an installation where herbs and botanicals will be gradually harvested from the bar walls so you can feel and smell the ingredients used in your drink right in front of you.

Cornish, who once managed a bar in Melbourne, said “We incorporate plants into our living environments, but the future is all about these plants serving a purpose and becoming an essential part of our lives.”

And what’s more essential than a great Caprioska?
