They Grow Without Us Benches

The honeycomb shaped public furniture is grown from mushrooms. A blend of mushroom spores and sawdust are grown in moulds to produce unique sustainable materials called mycelium biocomposites. While in the mould, the roots of the fungus, called mycelia, propagate in the spaces in the cellulosic material, producing solid objects. The honeycomb design of the seating reflects a fabrication process in which individually moulded hexagonal blocks are grown together to produce larger forms.
