What Is Biophilic Design?

Humans have an innate love of nature. We long for it and without connecting with it, our health could suffer. So, biophilic design is an applied solution to appease this desire for nature by integrating natural elements and processes into the built environment.

Benefits of Biophilic Design:

  • Improved employee retention
  • Improved health
  • Increased mood and feeling of well-being
  • Improved productivity
  • Increased employee engagement
  • Reduced stress levels
  • Mental restoration & reduced fatigue
  • Air purifying

Although it’s not alive the moss is a natural product that absorbs moisture. Through a constant cycle of absorption and release of ambient moisture, airborne particles are removed.

Benefits of Moss in Restaurants

Sound Absorption

Reindeer Moss is so good at absorbing sound that it can absorb up to twice as much as the industry average for products of the same size and thickness. Utilizing the natural beneficent sound absorbing properties, Reindeer Moss has a .95 Sabin rated absorption at 5000Hz.

Air Filtration

In addition, MossArt filters airborne toxins & dust out of the air through a constant cycle of absorption and release. Reindeer Moss is Hypoallergenic, made without the addition of toxic hazardous chemicals to preserve or dye.


Moss colors are sealed permanently using an all-natural mineral process. This prevents the moss from fading and allows it to be resistant to discoloration. 


One of the main complaints from restaurant goers today is the high noise levels.  That’s because, a noisy restaurant has a very negative effect on people’s overall dining experience making it difficult for them to converse with one another.  Therefore, Preserved Moss, especially Reindeer Moss is the ideal solution with no ongoing maintenance!  Classrooms & Boardrooms are other areas where the sound absorbing benefits of Moss can make a difference.

“We were having excessive noise issues in our dining room and contacted Nature Scenes to install preserved moss panels on the ceiling. Having great sound absorption qualities, Reindeer Moss minimized the noise and enhanced our guests experience.”

“The Moss also adds a unique design element to the restaurant!”
