The new paradigm in therapeutic interiors will focus on using interior design as not only decor but a supportive platform functioning as an inclusive healing modality.
Technology and Urban growth have ushered in an archetypal shift establishing the illusion that Nature and humankind are separate entities, escalating stress and anxiety creating psychological, physiological along with spiritual imbalances evident in all strata of society. Countless methods and healing modalities have been developed and failed for stress reduction, including costly and toxic drug therapies, counseling, rehab, holistic approaches such as meditation, yoga, Thai Chi, etc.
The time has come to usher in an archetypal shift that addresses the existential importance of redefining the antiquated model of therapeutic interiors from that of décor, into a functioning Eco-holistic treatment modality. Creating a fundamental transformation in the way Healthcare has traditionally perceived interior décor will be challenging on many levels. Hospital interiors have remained relatively unchanged for hundreds of years. Insignificant changes made in healthcare interiors have been superficial. Until recently there have been few if any substantial alternatives available to designers for the evolution of healthcare interiors until now!
The new paradigm in therapeutic interiors will focus on using interior design as not only decor but a supportive platform functioning as an inclusive healing modality. The synthesis of artificial intelligence, with virtual, and digital technologies will birth a holistic eco-prototype able to recreate a credible, immersive illusion of nature within therapeutic interiors
The application and integration of digital technology will alter how we approach, construct, and purpose interiors.Natures inherent stress-reducing attributes in conjunction with her inspirational beauty will produce an inspirational environmental aesthetic that creates feelings of well-being for therapeutic facilities, office and home interiors.
Eco-Immersive Interiors act as a non-toxic alternative to stress reduction for use in healthcare as well as for home and office use. Fewer prescriptions drugs ingested translates into reduced healthcare costs and the avoidance of the toxic side-effects associated with prescribed tranquilizers, mood enhancers, and other psycho-pharmaceuticals.
