Designer Grows Lamp Out of Fungi

The design process yields a lampshade and edible mushrooms

Could we be seeing the beginning of a genuine mushroom textiles trend? A month after Dutch designer Aniela Hoitink released images of her mushroom mycelium dress, fellow Dutch designer Jonas Edvard has used to same material to create a series of lamps, called MYX lamp. Edvard grows the mushrooms into a lampshade shape, and then harvests them for consumption, leaving behind the root system which dries into the final product, making this the only lampshade that is both sustainable and delicious.
