MUSHLUME

The future is now! Just take a glimpse at Danielle Trofe's pendant's if you can't believe it!


Danielle is redefining what interior objects are made from - the MushLume Lighting Collection if biofabricated using mycelium! <3



Danielle founded her studio in 2011 with the goal to make sustainable design both accessible and attractive. With an emphasis on biofabrication and biomimicry, much of her work upholds a fundamental value of nature and embodies a systems thinking approach that benefits all life on this planet.





So let's take a look at what MUSHLUME is made of:



1. MYCELIUM


LIVING ORGANISM | BIOFABRICATOR

The vegetative part of a fungus, or better known as the roots of mushrooms! This incredible organism is truly one of nature’s greatest wonders. Responsible for distributing water and nutrients to all plants in a forest, mycelium is not only a distributor of vital resources in an ecosystem, but a connector of information and communication. Ever compare the image of the world wide web to that of a mycorrhizal network? Nearly identical in form!



2. ALGAE


LIVING ORGANISM | BIOFABRICATOR

From microscopic diatoms to fast growing giant kelp, algae are a diverse group of photosynthetic organisms that play an essential role in not only the health and balance of the planet but the existence of us, humans! It is estimated that marine plants produce between 70 and 80 percent of the oxygen in the atmosphere. Nearly all marine plants are single celled, photosynthetic algae.
