Thing of the day: Grow - ekolampa with shade from this mycelium
Devices / / December 19, 2019
"Inspired by nature, designed in Brooklyn and raised you," - that's how the creators describe their project on Kickstarter. A truly eco-friendly lamp, the main part of which will have to literally grow, it is surprising and fascinating.
Grow represents a minimalist lamp on a wooden support and with a shade, which consists entirely of interwoven yarns fungal mycelium. It was his own and will grow, taking advantage of a set of components.
Complete Grow has a substrate material with a mushroom and two plastic template for forming the lampshade. It is only necessary to moisten the substrate to fill their forms, and covering film, wait four days. During this time, the mycelium will sprout and will completely fill all the space inside the template to form an eco-friendly lampshade with beautiful white texture.
It will only have to insert the cartridge with cable, install artless wooden stand and turn. The beauty!
Grow can be ordered at Kickstarter for $ 115. Delivery promise in November.
