This project is a result of an ongoing material research in mycelium – the vegetative part of the fungus – resulting in the design of table lamps collection.
Inside a mould, the mycelium consumes organic and synthetic waste as it grows under controlled conditions. The way mycelium consume waste could have highly significant implications on the way we can dispose synthetic waste.
When lit, the light project on the mycelium from below and glows back as soft natural light.
This project is a collaboration between Nir Meiri Studio and BIOHM – a London based startup working on developing sustainable solutions for the built environment.
