Yes, your eyes are playing tricks on you. What looks like a mythical treasure one would stumble upon in a storybook tale, is in fact a beautiful eco-friendly combination of reclaimed wood and LED lights . Great Mushrooming  is taking inspiration from the world’s best designer, Mother Nature , to create these luminous mushrooms whose only magic lies in their ability to charm.
Exhibited at the Design Festa 2010 , the Great Mushrooming’s work could easily be classified as fine art . Carefully handcrafted from glass, discarded wood and LED lights, the newly-formed fungi’s precise details are only cheekily offset by the industrial plastic on/off dial affixed to the side of each lamp. We’re struck by how this seemingly odd contrast adds a certain analog appeal to each light .
