first_imgThis April, Humanscale, a global designer and manufacturer of products that improve wellness at work, brings an engaging and innovative RE:CHARGE Café concept to the Fuorisalone during Milan Design Week.Humanscale has explored the science of biological lighting and its connection to wellness. Following circadian rhythms, this lighting represents a step forward for mental wellbeing and the impact on physical health, further demonstrating the brand’s commitment to design innovation, health and wellness.Humanscale’s Acting Creative Director and Designer, Todd Bracher – who is also behind some of the brand’s most recent designs, including the Trea Chair which mimics the instinctive recline of the human body and the glare-free Vessel Light – will transform a local Milanese café on Via Solferino into the RE:CHARGE Café concept.RE:CHARGE Café will feature a communal table with custom, state-of-the-art charging stations with built-in biological lighting and a lush green, air-purifying wall, made possible by the pioneering vertical agriculture specialists Vertical Field.  Along with free Wi-Fi and a healthy bar offering specialised “Green Shots” for rejuvenation of body and mind, RE:CHARGE Café will support the harmonious blends of work, sociability, relaxation and recharge which are synonymous with the Humanscale brand.The RE:CHARGE Café concept is also inspired by ‘Engineered Nature’, a recent trend identified and developed by London-based forecasting studio Franklin Till, drawing on human’s inherent connection to the natural world and the health benefits of being exposed to nature.RE:CHARGE Café invites visitors to re-energise both physically and mentally, while promoting wellbeing through a carefully curated and researched space, educating and giving back to the design community.last_img read more
