Mycelium chair

I love this chair by Studio Eric Klarenbeek! It was created by 3D printing mycelium, the threadlike network of fungi combined with organic waste. Once dried, it becomes a stable and renewable material. I find the combination of this sustainable, very much alive material with the technological precision of 3D printing fascinating and am very interested in incorporating it into my own work.
