a local ecosystem
we transform urban waste to transform it
into a unique artefact!
We collect your cardboard waste such as coffee cups, pizza boxes and other single use take away boxes.
TRANSFORMING WASTE INTO BIOMATERIAL
We transform your waste into a biomaterial that we inseminate with reishi, an edible fungi. Its roots, called mycelium, will naturally start to degrade the waste to transform it into a strong material.
3D PRINTING A UNIQUE ARTEFACT
We use 3d printing technologies to create unique artefacts inspired by nature. We explore the potential of mycelium to take over the shapes robotically built and see how it can intervene in the aesthetic composition of the pieces.
The mycelium grows and creates a skin with unpredictable colors and patterns which is as soft as a peach skin. Once fully grown, we dry the object to stop the development of the organism.
