Due to popular demand of our January 2019 Thought Leadership Luncheon, we will be hosting the Biophilia discussion once again as a special Loft Summer Thought Leadership Breakfast. How do biophilic elements affect our health and well-being in the office environment? What can we measure that demonstrates these benefits?
