Myco-Knit CompoSITe project by Ahmet and Romy for Dezeen Design Award 2022 in the Sustainability Category. The team explored knitted textiles as a framework which was then layered with Mycelium, the root network of fungi. Mycelium growth binds the organic filling material together, resulting in a stiff self supporting chair. The unique approach highlights the possibilities of building complex profiles with biomaterials in the future.
