Danish product designer Kristina Kjaer  needed a small lamp that could be hung above her wardrobe to light up her space. Kjaer  took to building her own lamp using natural, biodegradable materials, giving her design a shape reminiscent of the delightful  fungi found in her town’s local woodlands.
Unveiled at the latest edition of Stockholm Design Week , the aptly named ‘Fungus’ is a petite luminaire that can be hung or knotted to a bar. It simply consists of a biodegradable felt  screen — that comes in two shades of grey — and an ash handle with a black cord coming out of it. The lamp gives off a warm and gentle light thanks to a low-energy bulb.
