Why is it sustainable?
Kyoto is a bowl grown from a mix of urban wood waste + mushroom mycelium and dyed with natural pigments.
Wording is intentional here as this item isn’t made, it’s grown.
Mushroom mycelium acts as a natural glue that grows through a substrate into a mould, creating a solid material with a velvet touch.
Mycelium is an innovative material that exemplifies the potential of biofabrication in design.
