Concrete is one of the most carbon intensive products and is largely not recyclable. Yet concrete remains one of the most prominent materials within architecture and design. We believe waste streams present within the Flemish context could be used to replace traditional concrete constituents.
When photosynthetic life first emerged on Earth, the biosphere was irreversibly altered. Using microbes, we can create engaging color patterns on a wide variety of materials. We are developing a new method for dyeing objects with natural pigments.
Hard mycelium is a composite material that could be used to produce furniture and lighting objects that adds an organic and aesthetically-pleasing feeling to an interior space. We are doing further development to allow objects to meet a wider range in terms of qualities such as strength and shape limitations.
