We’ve featured Danielle Trofe‘s amazing energy-generating hourglass lamps in the past, and the designer just unveiled a new table lamp called Mush-Lume that is grown instead of being manufactured! The lamp shade is created using Ecovative’s patented growing process, which combines agricultural byproducts (like seed husks and corn stalks) with mushroom mycelium to grow a 100% organic, sustainable and biodegradable mushroom material. The lamp’s base is made from FSC-certified wood and hand-cast concrete. The lamp is set to launch on February 24th on Kickstarter, so stay tuned for your chance to support this project!
