Danish Product Designer Jonas Edvard Uses Fungiculture to Make Lamps from Mushrooms

By blending plant fibers and mushroom-mycelium into wonderful lights, Danish product designer Jonas Edvard proves that oyster mushrooms are much more than a tasty delicacy. He doesn't use factory produce, but rather grows these glorious luminaries over two or three weeks into a flexible, soft-light-emitting shade. Compostable and organic, this brilliant creation is called MYX and is one of the designer's brightest ideas.
