Warmer weather has prompted safely distanced gatherings for the outdoors.
This season explores the beauty and wonder of Mother Nature to create open and safe event spaces. Biophilic design--a concept used within the building industry to increase occupant connectivity to the natural environment through the use of direct nature, indirect nature, and space and place conditions--mixes style with sustainability to make event spaces more connected with nature and daily life. The organic stylings of CORT Events’ products are the perfect way to make an outdoor event beautiful and modern, all while promoting social distancing.
As we look forward to safe outdoor events, check out these biophilic-inspired design tips from CORT Events:
Use Dual-Purpose Decor
As planners begin to include both physical and mental cues to promote distance between attendees, consider how natural design elements could be of assistance.
Use large floral arrangements to divide a dining table into individual sections, or position a living plant wall to break up a larger space. For events with both indoor and outdoor spaces, use potted plants inside to create a seamless and welcoming flow as guests move from one area to the other.
Embrace Eco-Friendly Options
With rising concerns regarding the environment, attendees are more eco-conscious than ever. It’s important for event planners to keep both style and sustainability in mind when planning their next occasion.
Encourage an eco-friendly environment with furniture options that maintain modern design with sustainable choices. The composition of CORT Events’ Beverly Oasis, featuring linen fabric, sheds light on incorporating eco-conscious selections in a small way to create a large stylish impact on your space.
Infuse Organic Elements
Bringing naturalistic elements into your designs allows attendees to feel immersed in a pure, organic setting. While greenery and botanicals mimic nature, wooden elements create a rustic look, making your space authentic and revitalized.
The Geo Cocktail table adds a picturesque element, made with mixed metals and wood for a modern-rustic flair that adds contrast to a grounded space. Add the Kendra Lamp and Fiddle Leaf Tree for a stripped-down and sun-drenched affect, along with that pop of green that makes for a homespun adventure.
