The Designer Light Made From Fungus

Tuesday April 17, 2018 Written by Smith


A collaboration between New York designer Danielle Trofe and biofabrication company Ecovative, the grow-it-yourself MushLume Cup Light takes disgusting, unruly fungus and turns it into a nice-looking sustainable lamp shade.

The range also includes designs for desk lamps, bowls and planters, and each kit comes with everything you need to cultivate your mushrooms into a piece of practical homeware. Just don’t eat it.
