Info
Objects produced through the controlled growth of Mycelium, forming strong bonds between materials. Acting as an adhesive, structures placed in moulds can be bound. These objects could be used in packaging, offering a fascinating alternative to mass-produced materials used today.

Mycelium is the vegetative part of a fungus, consisting of a network of fine white filaments (hyphae). This system is used for plant species to communicate or draw energy from nutrients.

New materials could be grown, used and then biodegrade - that’s recycling.
