Jonas Edvard’s Biodegradable Myx Lamp Grows Edible Oyster Mushrooms
Designer Jonas Edvard just shared with Inhabitat his new Myx Lamp, which is made entirely from plant fibers and mushroom mycelium. The lamps are grown over a period of two weeks as fungi eat a substrate of plant fibers and produce a flexible and soft living textile. The production of each lamp generates 500-600 grams of Oyster mushrooms, and after harvesting the fungi the mycelium base serves as a dry and lightweight lampshade that is organic, compostable and sustainable. The result is an optimized end-waste product that doubles as a nutritious source of food!
