What we love about significant industry events is seeing and feeling the newest products on the market. Finding the best products for our innovative health, Wellness, and sustainability projects is paramount to Wellness Architecture. We are sharing some interesting finds we saw at IDS 2023.
Nature has been shown to improve wellness, happiness, health, and productivity, yet despite spending 85% of our time indoors, more nature still needs to be in many living spaces. This is where Biophilic Design comes in and why ByNature is our top wellness product at IDS this year. ByNature believes that any space can be transformed into a healthy environment and aims to bring nature into people’s lives by creating an enjoyable, rejuvenating experience for everyone. As Wellness Architects, we love that they work with partners to bring greenery to residential and commercial projects in unique and innovative ways.

5. Bunn Coffee Table by Krisette Santamaria
This last one is more on the sustainable/art side, but it’s a fun one we want to highlight to show the innovative thinking happening in our industry. The Bunn Coffee Table uses the humble coffee bean to interrogate the lifecycle of everyday experiences and their by-products. Here, Krisette repurposes and transforms used coffee grounds from a daily mundanity and waste material into the centrepiece of our living spaces. The work evokes strength and coherence from every angle, offering a natural, harmonious feel inspired by the promise of the sustainability ethos as part and parcel of our future aesthetic. Imagine if this is what we can do with coffee. What are the possibilities with all materials in the future.
